Caption: Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Sea salt crystals on the surface of coralline alga. Salt crystals formed when a coralline alga was dried. Salt is a mineral that it necessary for the survival of life, especially humans. It is compose of primarily sodium chloride. It is a crystalline solid, white, pale pink or light grey in colour, obtained from sea water or rock salt deposits.
