Looking for Mongolian rock salt

I am looking for an (available in the U.S.) source for Mongolian rock salt for a friend. So far, I haven't found an Internet outlet for mail order purchases. I recently found Himalayian rock salt, which is similar, but would really like to find the Mongolian for him. Any suggestions?

"Mongolian rock salt is served in teas; buuz, (a savory homemade dumpling stuffed with goat meat) and airag (the national drink). It is hand-harvested and grated."

Thanks, Jaya. Unfortunately this site doesn't appear to sell it. I have looked there before. When you "add to bag", the price comes up as "0", so I don't think they actually have any.

Thanks, Toam. Could you just post the price and delivery information here, please? I think others might be interested too.

TC, is it worth calling/emailing Nirmala's Kitchen directly? Maybe they can tell you what's going on. I do a lot of shopping at Indian grocery stores. Sometimes what happens is the FDA stops imports of certain foods/spices if, on random testing, non-food items were detected in the product.
