The True Treasure of Iran

Unlike sea salt harvested from salt pans, Persian blue salt is a fossil salt, also known as gem salt. Its crystals formed approximately 100 million years ago in the Precambrian seas through the evaporation of ancient lakes and inland seas. Persian blue salt is a relic of the Cretaceous mass extinction, as it coexisted with extinct species during that time. The distinctive blue color of this Iranian salt is due to the presence of sylvite, a potassium ore that is exclusively found in halite salts. Halite salts typically have a pink color, but finding veins of blue salt is rarer. Persian blue salt is hand-extracted from mountainsides in the Semnan province, located in the Ergourz mountain range in northern Iran. It is entirely harvested by hand.

The Very Ancient History of One of the Rarest Salts

The Iranian Jewel

The history of Persian blue salt dates back 100 million years. Extracted from the oldest salt mines in the world, in the heart of the Persian Empire in Iran, this salt with its distinctive color is a true jewel. This salt formed due to the movement of tectonic plates, which trapped water underground that was on the surface, thus forming this exceptional salt with a high content of sylvite.
