The Selenite Desert Rose is formed from the combination of water, wind, and sand. It is found in desert regions all over the world. Much of the Selenite variety is "treated" with a torch heat gently brushed over the "rose petal" edges, to create the fine lines that help one to see more clearly the shape of the rose. It is formed in a matter of tens to hundreds of years which is different from many of the stones that are hundreds of thousands to millions of years old.
The energy of the Desert Rose is very gentle and it teaches one that life is worth all of its ups and downs. It is a good stone for intuitive work because it quiets the mind so that worries and other distractions do not interfere with the work. Also, it clarifies visions so that one may interpret the messages in a flowing way, letting that which does not resonate easily sift away. This is the energy of sand, to flow with the wind and create landscapes that are half illusion.
Having a Selenite Desert Rose nearby in a home or office can help remove energy blockages, assist in mental acuity, and aid in bringing prosperity to business.
