Desert Rose is the name given to the rose-like formations of Gypsum or Baryte. The rosette appearance comes from the "petals" which are crystals flattened on the c crystallographic axis; this rosette crystal habit usually forms in the arid, sandy conditions found in deserts. Gypsum Roses typically have more defined edges than Baryte Roses.

These Desert Rose Gypsum roses range from sandy beige"petals" to a warm golden brown. Perfect for display, meditation, or as gifts!

It is believed that the Desert Rose is supportive of personal development, positive change, and growing as an individual. They are thought to be connected with gently removing barriers from previous belief systems that you may have moved on from. A great meditation stone!
