I bought this because I liked the embossing. I can't find any info on it though. I am sure its probably some common bottle and I am just typing in the wrong thing or something... Sorry if that's the case but I tried to find it.....

It reads:

Strontium
Taraf-Javal
Taria

I think anyway, I tried swapping the Ts for Js because I couldn't really tell which was which... but here it is. [:)]

Never seen one before, but I would guess that it contained the concentrated evaporates from mineral spring water. Looks Spanish so perhaps a spring in Spain. Not much of a leap to assume it was a spring rich in strontium salts (strontia) which do offer health benefits. The dried mineral blend would be reconstituted and consumed the same as fresh water from the spring.

Could be a number of things but I'd place my money on mineral spring salts. Would be nice to know what the other words are.
