The exquisite and delicate sand rose or desert rose (Gypsum) is one of the nature s fascinating quirks: not a flower at all but a mineral which crystalises in a unique rosette growth habit that is dissolved in the sea water. Found in a variety of sizes some look remarkably like a rose flower with its petals wide open; others form into beautiful bladed spheres and still others form large clusters comprised of many small rosette crystals. No one sand rose is identical to any other.
Since pure gypsum is transparent sand roses are the colour of the sand in which they are embedded. Sand roses are found in a variety of sizes ranging from small rosettes a centimeter across to large clusters more than one meter in diameter. These natural treasures are worth the effort of digging them out. People of the Sahara desert believe that the Sand Rose has an internal energy that is used for protection wealth and purification since it is the pure Mother Nature's design and creation. It can be put at home for the same beliefs or it can simply be used as a unique and uncommon attractive ornament as a decoration at home (in Aquariums gardens in kitchen in lounge room hanging on the wall on display cabinets etc) in your business particularly Jewellery shops antique shops unique artifacts shop etc. or it can also be added to your stones collection. Ideas are still open; it fits all minds and all locations.
