Crystal Deodorant :: Not As Natural As You Think

How Do I Know My Crystal Deodorant Is Natural?

I have discovered that natural alum appears as a white/clear, translucent, crystal stone that contains veins like those found in marble. And, the synthetic alum is visually very similar, except that it is completely opaque, and does not contain veins.

The Tade alum stone clearly contains veins, and when I compared it side by side with other crystal deodorants it was significantly more translucent.  Therefore I conclude that it is in fact natural.  You can see below in the image the high level of translucency, and the clearly visible veins. Additionally, I contacted Tade directly, and they guaranteed me that it is 100% natural and made from pure, natural alum stone, not from synthetic alum.
