Difference between Semnan blue salt with 3 Other types of blue salt:

Four types of blue salt have been seen around the world until now. There are two main differences between Semnan mine blue salt in Iran and three other ones in Garmsar, Iran and Kłodawa, Poland, and New Mexico, USA. In terms of appearance, those three mines have transparent structures with some shades of blue and purple colors among them. But Semnan blue salt has totally different structure and it looks likes many tiny rock salts are stick together with the light purplish color which is dotted with blue color.

On the other hand, their analysis is totally different and the Semnan blue salt is edible and its color is derived from Sylvite (or sylvine that is potassium chloride (KCl)), but those three mines in Garmsar, Poland, and the USA have the mix of sylvite and arsenic.


Persian blue salt is expensive because of the scarcity and difficulty in harvesting. this salt is Extracted in a limited amount (60-80 Mt/Year) annually. The blue salt mine shows how it is scarce and that clarifies it is just a vein in a big mine.


Original Persian Blue Salt comes from the province of Semnan city in northern Iran, where it is extracted the same way as miners dig for gold – because the “blue salt” streaks within the ordinary rock salt are like veins of the precious metals. Also, like gold veins, it is extremely rare. Mining the blue salt is, therefore, a laborious task. Large quantities of rock salt must be removed to gain access to the precious blue crystals.

A comparison between four types of blue salt which have been seen around the world shows a distinct difference among Semnan blue salt and three other blue salts in Garmsar, Kłodawa, and New Mexico.

This makes the blue salt of Semnan mine more unique. Also being edible is the other important characteristic of the Semnan Persian blue salt that cause it can be offered in the other sizes as cooking and finishing salt more than the sizes which can be used as salt lamps.
