I found this online, but I'm not sure how reliable it is... "Celtic Sea Salt" seems to be both a type of salt and a brand name.
Table Salt: Also known as common salt, is commonly used by most people for cooking and for food preservation. Table salt is refined (processed), removing 82 out of the 84 minerals in salt, leaving behind only sodium and chloride. Over-consumption of table salt causes many untold health problems.
Sea Salt: Sea salt is a general term that refers to salt derived directly from the sea. And that is what it is, except that it is refined¾similar to table salt. Sea salt is thought to be healthier and more flavorful than table salt, but in actual fact it is actually processed and minerals and trace elements are removed.
Celtic Sea Salt: Refers to naturally moist salt harvested from the Atlantic seawater off the coast of Brittany, France. This type of salt are harvested using the Celtic method of wooden rakes allowing no metal to touch the salt. It is naturally air and sun-dried in clay ponds and gathered with wooden tools to preserve its living enzymes. Because it is unrefined, it contains all of the 84 beneficial live elements found in sea water, with no chemical and preservatives nor any other additives.
