A Unique Salt Dish With Natural Properties
Pink salt or pink Himalayan salt is an alternative salt derived from the Himalayan Mountains. Himalayan is derived from the Sanskrit term meaning “the high mountain.” This signifies the salt’s purplish color, as well as its lofty location that makes it one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Pink salt also comes in a variety of hues from sky blue to rich browns depending on the mine in which it was mined. Some Himalayan salt mines produce pink salt in the form of a natural stone that resembles pink salt crystal.
Pink Himalayan salt lamps are popular throughout the world because of their natural beauty and unique characteristics. Himalayan crystal salt lampshades come in a wide variety of colors such as lavender, pink, yellow, red, orange, green and blue. They are mined in Pakistan and India and are mainly sought after by collectors around the world. Although pink salt is mined all over the world, it is most commonly found in northern Pakistan and Indian Himalayan states. The pink salt lamps are created by melting natural crystals of the salt, pouring them into a glass vessel of colored water, which is allowed to cool and solidify so that it becomes liquid and is suspended as a decorative lighting item.
Scientists have determined that Himalayan pink salt deposits were formed from fossils and shells dating back to the Cretaceous geological period. In addition to its beauty as a table salt, the pink salt has become popular as a popular mineral additive for cosmetics and natural remedies due to its deodorizing, antiseptic and antifungal properties. Pink salt has many other uses not related to table salt and cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
