Rock Salt

Rock salt -- Rock, from the medieval Latin rocca. Salt, from old Germanic salz. A rock is made up of one or more minerals. Rocks are grouped into 3 main categories: sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous. Rock salt falls under the category of sedimentary rocks as it comes from ancient oceans or salt lakes where all the water has evaporated and the salt is formed into hard rock.
