A Desert Rose is a selenite gypsum that occurs naturally. It’s most often the combination of Selenite and Barite and forms through a process of moisture condensation. The Selenite clusters together and creates a mass. This mass is then subjected to the elements present around it, like wind erosion and sand. What forms after is the Desert Rose! It resembles a cluster of rose petals, and its colors can range from brown, tan, cream, to white. Desert Rose is also sometimes called Gypsum Rose, Selenite Rose, Rose Rock, Gypsum Rosette, and Sand Rose. Desert Rose is found in many desert areas like Algeria, Australia, Spain, Morocco, Mexico, and South Africa.
The symbol and essence of the rose has long been connected to the Divine and believed to carry the divine qualities of honor, balance, wisdom, acceptance and passion.
Desert Rose creates a bridge of Light between Heaven and Earth strengthening our connection to the Divine, encouraging connection with our inner truth and acknowledgement of the dreams and desires living in the heart.
In healing, Desert Rose Selenite is believed to ease issues affecting the bones, ease inflammation, balance brain chemistry, detox and purify body and energy bodies, instill calm and peace and is a stone of protection for individual and environment.
