Sand Rose is a type of crystalline mineral formed by the evaporation of water in desert conditions. This distinctive mineral formation is primarily composed of gypsum, although it can also be formed from barite, salt, and other minerals. Sand Roses get their name from their unique floral appearance, with crystallizations that resemble rose petals. They are generally white to light brown in color and are often translucent. Sand Roses typically form in arid regions where water evaporates quickly, leaving behind the minerals that form the crystals.
