Pink “Himalayan” salt

Leave a comment

saltworksPink “Himalayan salt” is sometimes Namibian salt, from Walvis Bay. In my understanding this is rock salt, not sea salt, and it is the color of algae (not Himalaya) that gives it a bright pink color. Some of the salt pans were a deep purple.

The world mostly shows it most splendid colors by accident.
