Desert Rose is sometimes called Sand Rose, Selenite Rose or Gypsum Rose or Gypsum Rosettes. Desert Rose is a unique, natural crystal formation that is formed from the combination of water, wind and sand. It carries the energies of clarity, prosperity and purification. Desert Rose helps to rid the mind of old thought-processes, opening up the flow of guidance from your intuition.
Desert Rose holds the same healing properties as Selenite and Satin Spar, however it also has a few of its own. Many cultures use this Gypsum rose to neutralize negative energy from a space or person. It is believed that the stone removes the negative energy and sends it to mother earth to heal.
