Good looking, how do you tell the salt from the pepper?

@Jesse The salt is usually crystalline and white in color. The pepper is usually much darker.

All kidding aside, I made the center pepper shaker hole larger (after the photo was taken).

Actually, salt is always crystalline. It is an ionic crystal of Sodium (Na) and Chlorine (Cl) hence the molecular formula of NaCl.

@JesseTutt Incorrect. You can also have very finely powdered amorphous sodium chloride (noncrystalline). And you can have amorphous liquid sodium chloride (again, noncrystalline)

Just because a compound is ionic doesn’t mean it is always crystalline.
