Himalayan Salt is a type of rock salt or Halite from the Punjab region of Pakistan. Although it is not directly from the Himalayas, the deposit Himalayan Pink Salt comes from is close to the Himalayas. This deposit of Himalayan Salt is said to have been discovered in 326 BC when Alexander the Great was moving through Khewra, Punjab. Salt was most likely mined there from then but the first records come from the 1200's by the Janjua people.
