Commonly known as rock salt, Halite is made of sodium chloride (NaCl). The word Halite comes from the Greek words halos (salt) and lithos (rock). Halite is formed when seawater or salty lake water evaporates, and can form vast beds of mineral. One of the most remarkable Halite deposits is located beneath the Mediterranean Sea. These beds formed about eight million years ago when this sea was a land-locked salt lake. 

Although it is a form of salt, this Halite is not for consumption. Besides it ruining the natural beauty of the stone, consuming this Halite could be a danger for your health. This is not food-grade, and may contain impurities and contaminates not meant to be ingested. Instead, we can appreciate and admire the cubic forms and pastel pinks these specimens offer us.

 Due to the natural variation of the mineral, the Halite you receive may look different from the one pictured.

Approximately 5 inches long, each specimen will vary in size
