Also known as “coral sand,” Somelite consists of natural coral grains. Somelite is primarily made up of shells and skeletons of reef-building coral and Foraminifera, such as star sand, that inhabit the water near Okinawa. These organisms ingest mainly calcium and magnesium from the ocean. The result is a coral sand made up of approximately 95% calcium carbonate. Somelite also contains abundant amounts of calcium, magnesium and other minerals required by the body for optimal health.
Used as a water-purifying agent, the minerals in Somelite flow into the water, creating water with a balance of minerals. It also turns acidic tap water alkaline and removes odor. Because Somelite is a porous it also absorbs and removes heavy metals, foreign materials and more.
