Andes Mountain Rose is the Centerfold

Andes Mountain Rose is a rock salt hand quarried from the Andes Mountains in southern Bolivia.  The salt shifts shapes as it walks through time: once a chalk-colored crust of a salt pan formed from an ocean that evaporated millennia earlier it was then buried under 10 thousand feet of shifting continental plates, only to emerge hundreds of million years later as a orange-pink stone.  The salt shifts colors in the changing light of the day in amazing, and sometimes unsettling ways.

    Yes, it is sold at The Meadow in coarse and fine grinds, though you will have to talk to them about shipping to the UK, if that is where you are writing from.
