Hanksite is a Sodium Potassium Sulphate Carbonate Chloride mineral that is formed as hexagonal bipyramids terminating in hexagonal prisms.
It can be colourless, gray or pale yellow. Hanksite is found in boron-rich salt lakes of California, along with Halite, borax and trona.
Hanksite is unusual in that it is formed in arid areas where the water in creeks dries out and deposits the minerals onto the river bed, the crystals combine and solidify, and then form the hanksite crystals. Due to the high sodium content the crystal actually tastes salty, cleanse the stone by placing it in a bowl of uncooked brown rice overnight.
