Halite (Rock Salt)

Product description

A large specimen of Halite (Rock Salt) from the Wieliczka Salt Mines, near Krakow, Poland.

This was one of the most famous locations for the mining of Rock salt, and has now become a tourist attraction. It has many carvings in salt below ground, including a church, visited by John Paul II.

In the past, salt was an important object of trade, and still today, it remains as one of mans primary needs.

It is a product of high temperature fumaroles, but generally of sedimentary rock, as a result of evaporation of sea water.
