Properties :  The Rose of the Sands  is part  of  family  from  Gypsum , it crystallizes by the evaporation of infiltrated water, within a soft and deformable medium (clay, sand) mainly in deserts. This is where groundwater, rich in calcium sulphate, infiltrates and then impregnates the sand by capillarity. Under the combined action of heat, wind and sun, the water gradually rises to the surface, evaporating on the way: sand and salt remain. The crystallization of Gypsum begins, the Rose of the sands takes root. By mixing with grains of sand and calcium sulphate, the crystals, which always climb in the ground, gradually grow in size and become entangled in petals. With a grainy, crumbly consistency, the Rose of the Sands is famous for the splendor of its color: from beige to old pink, from red to brown, it is distinguished by sumptuous reflections sometimes white, sometimes pearly, sometimes silvery.


Affixed to the Chakra of the 3rd eye, the Rose of the sands promotes telepathy, develops the gift of clairvoyance and helps open-mindedness. On the Solar Plexus, it is an excellent centering tool and a perfect aid to meditation. It brings balance and emotional stability, curbs outbursts, gives self-confidence, helps to accept and love oneself, to remain in control of oneself and to achieve one's goals. The Rose of the Sands eliminates the negative programming that hides in us and helps us to transform old hatreds into sincere love. 

It promotes balance between us and others  : receive and give with rightness. This variety of Gypsum is also very effective against stomach problems. Placed on the Sacral Chakra, it is a stone which regulates the water content of the tissues and which balances the bladder and the prostate.
