My best friend & I spent the first weekend in October 2018 digging up these California Pink Halite pieces up from the briney pools of the desert, read all abut it here.
Pink Halite is a sodium chloride crystal that is very soft, with a hardness of 2 (compared to that of Quartz which is a hardness of 7). It formed due to the evaporation of sea water & is in pink in color due to the special minerals & impurities from seaweed of the specific location. These are from an evaporated lake in California.
Pink Halite is thought to cleanse the heart chakra (energy center), & help one overcome past emotional traumas by opening the heart & connecting one with the loving source of the Universe. Its affects are thought to be similar to Rose Quartz but on a stronger level of cleansing the body. It has a very calming affect on the body & has uplifting energy. Said to be a stone great for empaths.
I have read to not place halite on the belly during pregnancy.
These are small bags with about 5oz of pink halite crystals, dust and chips. They vary in size + in colors of pink and white. Would be great on display in a bowl, to cleanse things placed on them, or if you'd like you can add a small amount to your bath water (it will dissolve.) 1 whole bag shown in our Flower of Life Offering Bowl for size.
*Halite is a super soft stone! DO NOT GET THIS STONE WET - unless you want it to dissolve - If you live in a very humid climate it is suggested to store it somewhere dry maybe even with a silica packet to help absorb moisture. Do not leave in direct sunlight as it can cause the beautiful pink color to fade over time.
