How Much Does Rock Salt Cost?

Rock salt, technically known as halite, is the mineral form of sodium chloride.  The grains of rock salt are about the size of a large pebble, but can be put in a grinder to make traditional salt.  While it may seem strange, there are actually quite a few uses for rock salt.  The most common use for rock salt is to help provide traction on the roads during the snowy season.  This salt can also be spread on icy driveways and sidewalks to avoid slips and falls.  Another use of rock salt is to be used in cooking.  There are specific salt shakers that have a grinder attached to grind your own salt onto your food.  There is also a type of rock salt that is used when making ice cream.  Finally, rock salt is used in my household water softeners.  Finally, rock salt can be used in exfoliating scrubs since the coarseness can help to remove dead skin cells and clear out the skin’s pores.

Rock salt is usually white or colorless rock salt forms naturally as isometric crystals when the saline water of the sea or a large lake evaporates, sometimes hundreds of meters deep.  Once this process is complete, it is mined from underground deposits in areas such as inland marginal seas, dry lakes as well as estuaries and bays.  The crystals are then treated with an anti-caking agent and put into storage to await transportation.
