Desert Rose Selenite Crystal Mineral Specimen For SaleDesert Rose Selenite

   
Rocks, Minerals, and FossilsSelenite is a common crystalline form of Gypsum (CaSO42H2O), which is hydrated calcium sulfate.  In hot arid deserts, water often evaporates from shallow, salty basins.  Under such conditions, Gypsum can grow around grains of sand to form flower-like clusters of flat, bladed Selenite crystals.  These rosette-shaped clusters are called Desert Rose Selenite.  Other names include Sand Rose, Rose Rock, and Gypsum Flower.  The name Selenite comes from selene, the Greek word for "moon."

Here's a photo of a huge Desert Rose formation in the Tunisian desert.  The Desert Rose Selenite specimens for sale on this page are from Mexico.
