Desert Rose, also known as Gypsum Rose or Sand Rose, is a type of Selenite . It is formed from a combination of water, wind, and sand. Sand becomes embedded in Selenite blades, which over time when combined with wind or water, create the signature “rosette” formation. The rosette formations are created over a few hundred years, making them relatively young compared to most crystals, which have formed over millions (or billions) of years. Desert Rose is found in most deserts around the world.
