Desert rose is the name given to rosette formations of the minerals gypsum and barite with sand inclusions. The ‘petals’ are crystals flattened , fanning open along characteristic gypsum cleavage planes. The rosette crystal habit tends to occur when the crystals form in arid sandy conditions, such as the evaporation of a shallow salt basin.
