The men in this video share the incredible phenomenon of perfectly shaped salt cubes found on the beaches of the Dead Sea. At 304 meters deep and 34.2% salinity the Dead Sea is the largest hypersaline lake in the world. The harsh, salty environment makes it impossible for plants and animals to survive, hence its name. However, the valuable minerals and unique make-up of the lake has made it a world marvel that attracts people from all over to visit and experience.
