Things people believe that don't make sense

People say salt crystals consist of alternating + and - ions held together by electrostatic forces. Why then can't you put 2 crystals together and make them stick? Oh sure, there are defects, but if you take a tiny perfect crystal and cleave it in half, you can't get the halves to stick no matter what. Something is fishy here.
