Rock Salt is ground and refined to be used as an alternative to table salt, great for every day cooking. Rock salt is salt mined from the salt deposits present underground in many parts of the earth. These deposits were formed when ancient water bodies, which had a large salt content, dried up and left the salt behind. These salt deposits were covered with sediment over time and remained underground until they were mined for the salt.
