Pink and orange Himalayan salt

Pink salt - what is it?

Rock salt from a deposit in the Punjab region (Pakistan). The history of pink salt begins over 300 million years ago. It dissolved into the ancient ocean and when it dried up, it appeared in the form of deposits in the foothills of the Salt Ridge in the Indo-Gangetic Plain. Due to the absence of various manufacturing enterprises and factories in the area, pink salt does not contain harmful impurities. The mineral is mined manually from the natural reserves of the Khevra salt mines. As a result, it is possible to maintain the purity of the mineral. Himalayan pink salt is called "king salt" or "salt of life".
