Pink Halite No4
This is a really super piece of rare Pink Halite collected from Searles Lake in California. Halite is a type of Salt and it's pink because there are millions of microscopic salt-loving bacteria that live in the lake and when they die their bodies contribute the pink colour that is often incorporated into the Salt crystals that grow there.
Incidently, it's the very same bacteria that the flamingos eat and that makes them pink !
You can only collect once a year from Searles Lake and so there is not much of this mineral around.
As it is a member of the Salt family, don't wash it - ever! Otherwise your investment will simply dissolve and disappear down the sink. Keep it out of bright sunlight too, otherwise the pink crystals simply revert to white again.
If you can take these two simple precautions then you could own this quite rare mineral for your collection or healing practice.
This really is an amazing piece and a great example of Pink Halite.
Size approx. 95mm x 80mm x 40mm
