What makes Himalayan crystal salt so amazing is that about 200 million years ago, the Earth held many crystallized sea salt beds covered with lava. The crystallized sea salt was then subsequently enveloped in snow and ice for millennia, it was protected naturally from modern-day pollution and preserved in an untouched, pristine and natural environment.
The Himalayan mountain range goes across Asia, and passes through China, Nepal, Myanmar, Pakistan, Bhutan, Afghanistan, and India. Many people believe that this pink salt is the purest salt that can be found on the planet and that is the reason is costlier than common table salt.
