Pink Himalayan salt has a unique composition. Because of its extremely high melting point, it is considered the most superior form of salt available. In fact, Himalayan salt is one of the most expensive salts on the market. Since so many people collect Himalayan salt, there are several different types of this wonderful rock crystal that you can find in the crystals that are sold in stores today.
The most common type of this rock crystal is known as the "Kashmir" variety because of its unique crystal structure. This type of rock crystal is more commonly used in decorating jewelry.
There is also the "Kesh" or the "Mastic Crystal Variety". The crystals in this variety have the same natural colors as Himalayan salt. However, these crystals come in different shades.
"Lime Green" is one of the varieties in this color range. Another one is the "Purple Midnight Blue" variety.
In addition to all of the many varieties of these rocks, there are some specific types of salt that you may want to know about. Pink Himalayan salt and sea salt both come from the same area in the Himalayas, but there are some distinct differences between the two.
Sea salt is used in all kinds of products. It is a common element in powdered form in baking mixes, confectionaries, and flavorings. Sea salt is also used to make salt in your garbage can.
Himalayan salt, on the other hand, has a lower melting point than sea salt. Thus, it is not used in the kitchen, but is used in the sea to dissolve unwanted bits and pieces from the ocean. Even though the salt is placed in the ocean, it cannot be dissolved in it, because it has to be heated to melt.
While sea salt is used for culinary purposes, Himalayan salt is primarily used for decorative purposes. The color variation is caused by impurities that are naturally present in the crystal.
Since the impurities are kept in check by the higher melting point of the salt, they do not show up as much as they would in sea salt. On the contrary, Himalayan salt will have a much darker color due to the small amount of impurities that are in the crystals. However, this type of salt is used for decorative purposes.
The most popular variety of Himalayan salt is the "Sanskrit" or the "Himalayan Herbal Variety". This variety comes in a variety of colors and shades. It is widely used for decorating dishes, including appetizers, desserts, salads, and dips.
Because of its popularity, Himalayan salt is also available in ordinary glass containers. If you are looking for something special, then the glass container is ideal. While glass containers may not be as sturdy as other types of rocks, they do provide a more attractive look to the crystals.
The type of rock crystal varieties that you will find are generally based on the type of minerals that were brought to the Himalayas and combined with the weather conditions. Once the conditions were right, the two world-famous salt mines in the world began to produce these crystals. While the initial prices of the stones were very high, they have been valued at a very low price due to their rarity and beautiful colors.
