Desert Rose from Manitoba, also called Gypsum Selenite Flower/Gypsum Flower, is a type of Selenite formed from a combination of water, wind, and sand. Sand becomes embedded in Selenite blades, while additions of water overtime help form the signature “rosette” formation.
Desert Rose is a stone of the mind. It promotes intuitive perception, mental ability and clarity. It calms the worries of the mind from distractions and disruptions. It clarifies thinking and perception. Desert Rose can be used to relieve stress and enhance will power. It is best to place at the bedside, near a favourite chair, in the home or office as it helps cleanse the auric field and the environment. As with Selenite, Desert Rose will clear and charge other gemstones it is placed near. Although they do not make good palm stones, because of their fragile states, adding them near a meditation chair, yoga mat or under a Reiki table will assist in removing blockages between Chakras and assist with the Chi energy flow.
A wonderful gemstone to manifest your dreams into reality, use in crystal grids as they will also cleanse and recharge the stones around them or hold gently while verbally stating your intentions.
