Desert Rose History and Uses:
There is a particular type of Desert Rose Selenite found only in Oklahoma that formed around 250 million years ago when a shallow sea covered the current state (it's locally called “Gerber Sandstone”). As the sea retreated, baryte precipitated out of the water and crystallised around grains of quartz sand.
A traditional Native American tale stated that Desert Rose Selenites were carved by warriors who returned home from the spirit world. The roses were said to have been spread across the Earth to protect these spirits’ homeland. They have traditionally been used as talismans for protection, overcoming phobias and to help boost self confidence.
