Halite

Halite is the mineral form of sodium chloride, NaCl, commonly
known as rock salt.

Halite forms isometric crystals. The mineral is typically colorless to yellow, but may also be light blue, dark blue, and pink depending on the amount and type of impurities. Halite commonly occurs with other evaporite deposit minerals.

Halite occurs in vast beds of sedimentary minerals that result from the drying up of lakes and seas.

Salt beds may be up to hundreds of meters thick and underlie broad areas. In the United States and Canada extensive underground beds extend from the Appalachian basin of western New York through Ontario and the Michigan Basin. Additional deposits are in Ohio, Kansas, New Mexico, Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan.

Halite is often used both residentially and municipally for managing ice. Because saline (a solution of water and salt) has a lower freezing point than ordinary water, putting salt on ice will cause it to melt.

It is common for homeowners in cold climates to spread 'rock salt' on their walkways and sometimes driveways after a snow storm to melt the ice. It is not necessary to use so much salt that the ice is completely melted; rather, a small amount of salt will weaken the ice so that it can be easily removed with other means. Also, many cities will spread a mixture of sand and salt on roads during and after a snowstorm to improve traction.

Halite salt is also used to make ice cream. While not actually used in the ice cream mixture, it is used to melt the ice surrounding the can holding the ice cream, causing the ice to melt at a lower temperature, quickening the freezing process.


Halite is extremely common. It is found in solid masses, is a dissolved solution in the oceans and in many inland lakes. The inland lakes that are rich in salt exist in arid regions, and are commonly below sea level.
