Halite is also known as sodium chloride or rock salt. After refinement, it becomes table salt. In
nature, halite is a colourless mineral that easily dissolves in water. When salt water evaporates,
halite is the residue left behind. Large halite deposits are located in Germany, Spain, and
Saskatchewan, Canada. Halite is mined for its chlorine and sodium content; these two elements
are of great importance in industry.
