A 200 million year old salt!
This pink Himalayan salt is 200 million years old. The Himalayas are the result of the collision of the Indo-Australian and Eurasian plates, which caused the disappearance of the former Thetys ocean. When its water slowly evaporated, salt crystals were deposited on the slopes of the emerging mountains.
This pink salt is rich in minerals and trace elements (potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and copper). This is a highly pure 'fossil' salt, which Himalayan tribes used to carry from the Himalayan mines down to the valleys on the back of their yaks.
