Halite, sodium chloride, or salt is made up of equal parts of sodium and chlorine. Halite’s chemical formula is NaCI, the Na standing for sodium and the CI for chlorine. This ionic compound has an isometric or cubic structure due to the way the atoms come together. There are a variety of these cubic structures but the one most common in halite are the rock salt or sodium chloride structures. The ionic compounds fuse because the atoms don’t share electrons. Atoms that have only one or very few electrons in their valence shell are very vulnerable to losing them. If another atom comes along with lots of electrons in its valence shell, but not quite enough to be complete, the other atom's lonely old electron will get snatched away to join the shell with lots of electrons, and make a complete electron shell. When this happens though, a discrepancy in charge is created. The atom that now has the extra electron that it is not supposed to have has a more negative charge, and the atom that got its electron stolen has a more positive charge. This is a perfect example of opposites attract, and in this case the attraction is so strong that the two atoms become fused to each other. This ionic bond is a result of a chemical bond which is where one atom gives up an electron and the other atom gives up another electron at the same time thus forming two ions of opposite charge generating an electrical force that holds the atoms together, this force is the attraction between positively and negatively charged ions.
Khalidmaqbool.com extracts the premium quality Himalayan Halite salt Crystals from the Foothills of Himalaya and crushes and filters the best cubes of Natural Halite Salt crystals from the nature’s gift in Himalaya’s Salt Mines. It is 100% natural. Himalayan Halite Salts forms isometric crystals.
These are mostly colourless or white. There are shades like pink, orange, red purple due to impurities. Himalayan Halite salt can be use for home or local purpose as well as to manage ice.
Himalayan Halite salt crystals are for sole (solay).
Our Halite salt is shipped in bigger pieces exclusively, because it would lose its transparent qualities through grinding, depriving you of its natural fascinating beauty.
Himalayan Halite salt can be used to produce brine or for decorating purposes. Many of your guests will ever have seen salt in such a form: translucent salt crystals directly from a salt mine.
To Prepare The Crystal Sole....
Place Several Himalayan Halite Salt stones in a small glass jar with a lid (not metal).
Cover the salt crystals with pure living spring water. After about 24 hours, check to see if the salt crystals have completely dissolved. If they have, add another crystal, and keep doing this until the salt crystals no longer dissolve, but rather, remain at the bottom of the jar.
At this point, the water has reached it’s 26% saturation level, and you have Sole.
You can always add more water to replenish your supply of sole, just remember that when you do, you need to add more Himalayan Halite Salt crystals.
