Salt Crystal Information

Origins of our salt products

The crystal salt rocks used for our products were formed millions of years ago by natural forces. When the ancient sea near the Himalayas dried up from the energy of the sun, layers of salt were deposited deep into the earth.

During this period, the Himalaya mountain range was rising; many mountains rose to altitudes of more than 7000 meters. The layers of salt settled deep beneath these mountains. The layers were exposed to considerable pressure and intense temperatures, resulting in the formation of this rare crystal salt.

When mining the salt crystals, the use of dynamite is strictly prohibited to preserve the natural crystal structure. Lamps are carefully hand-crafted to retain the beautiful and natural shape of the rock. The result is a unique lamp of natural colours, ranging from light apricot, to orange, pink and red.
