Tiki S&P

I picked up this set of "Dolomite Salt & Pepper Shakers" at Eckerd this week. I think they were on sale for about $2.

They're from China but they're still tikis and still pretty cool.

This leads me to... what exactly is dolomite anyway? Evidently it is some sort of sedimentary carbonate rock similar to limestone. See the Wikipedia entry on dolomite for more info.

Are they guys "dolomite" for real? I doubt it. But hey they're "hand painted" and have a "glazed finish." At least that's what the box says.

BTW: I've heard that you should never put salt in shakers if you're collecting them. The salt is corrosive.
