Million years old and in a contemporary design!
These wax holders are made of salt stone, which is found deep in the great desert in Egypt.
There was a sea there millions of years ago that has evaporated and left rock hard salt.
Craftsmen now make these beautiful, simple-shaped waxine holders.
The light that shines through is nicely filtered and soothing in color.
Be careful: if the rock is on a wet surface, it can dissolve again in salt.
