Amazingly even the Chandeliers in the Cathedral are made of salt. It was not simply hewn from the ground and then thrown together however, the process is rather more painstaking for the lighting. After the extraction the Rock Salt was first of all dissolved. It was then reconstituted with the impurities taken out so that it achieved a glass-like finish.
