A natural treasure from Pakistan

Terre Exotique's diamond salt comes from vast salt mines at in the heart of the Himalayas in North Pakistan. The Khewra mines contain 6.7 billion tonnes of salt… A real treasure buried under the mountain range! So far only 220 million tonnes have been extracted from the mines. This delightful gem is extracted by hand and reaches the light of day after a long journey up from the mines. This diamond salt was produced when the sea salt fossilized when the Himalayas formed several million years ago. Hidden under the mountains, this diamond salt gets its name from its gem-like crystals. It’s full of magnesium and iron which is what gives it its pink tinge. 

This diamond salt holds thousands of years of history

These diamond salt crystals are the jewel of the Himalayas!

The history of diamond salt began 200 million years ago. The Himalayan Mountains were born due to the collision of the Indo-Australian and Eurasian plates that closed the Tethys Ocean separating them. The slow evaporation of this ocean left behind these rose salt crystals, rich in minerals and trace elements. Alexander the Great was the first to bring this precious Kashmir salt to Europe, around 350 years BC. In antiquity it was reserved for high religious leaders and emperors. Until the end of the 20th century, nomads would transport the salt on yaks and trade it for wheat or other foods. In the Himalayas, mankind and yaks have always been partners. Without the yak’s fur, milk, meat, leather, and dung, man would never have survived.
