Himalayan Salt is widely famous for its beauty, purity and health benefits both for animals and human beings. Ancient civilization used to call it “White Gold”.

WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE?

The salt crystals are a light pinkish color, and when observed through a microscope, you would notice that they come in an astonishing variety of gorgeous geometrical patterns.
