Description

Great example of Desert Rose from Tunisia.
These fascinating minerals are rose-like formations, in fact, composed of gypsum and barite crystals with different grains of sand inside.
They are often formed by the evaporation of a not very deep saline basin in very arid climatic conditions.
The Desert Rose may also be called the Sand Rose.
