Wadi Natrun is a depression in Northern Egypt that hosts important evaporitic deposits. Mining of sodium minerals here started in Pharaonic times, probably as much as about 6000 years ago. We studied the mineralogy of this area for about a decade, through extensive analytical work and field campaigns that allowed discovering excellent specimens of sodium minerals.
