Desert Rose is a beautiful variety of gypsum that forms in the spaces between sand particles

Desert Rose is a beautiful variety of gypsum that forms in the spaces between sand particles. It traps the loose sand in a unique flower-like crystal structure.

Desert rose usually forms spherical and disc-shaped crystals with a range of graceful curving lines. Very large desert roses are rare but have been discovered as large as a metre in diameter. This is only possible in the coarsest sand found below the water table.
