  • First step to creating a halite sedimentary rock? You'll need a sea or a salt lake.
  • When the sea/lake evaporated after millions of years,thick chunks of salt were left behind.
  • Can you guess what the chunks of 'salt' are?
  • That's right! It's halite!
  • Wait,so halite is-
  • Yep! Halite is salt! The stuff that you put on your food!
  • So, the formation of a halite sedimentary rock is pretty simple...
  • ...And that wraps it up! Of course, there is another step from turning  the rock salt into actual salt.
  • ...First, the sea/salt lake evaporates over a course of millions of years. After, lumps of salt are left behind...
  • The workers heat the halite even MORE, to get rid of all the water and bacteria.
  • Thanks for Looking and Learning: How does a Halite Sedimentary Rock Form?
