Desert Rose (Selenite)- White Tipped

450.00

Desert Rose (Selenite) - White-tipped 

 A ‘Desert Rose’ forms when crystals form in extremely dry, sandy and salty conditions - such as the evaporation of a shallow sea bed. The crystals and minerals form a circular array of flat plates, giving the rock a shape similar to a rose blossom. The sand then encrusts the crystals, and this colour varies with the local environment.

Location: Tunisia

Age: Approx 250 millions years old
