This collection was inspired by desert rose. Desert Rose is a variety of the mineral gypsum. It is a hydrous calcium sulfate mineral, and as seen in this picture, forms these very distinctive crystals, formed from a combination of water, wind and sand.. The energy of the desert rose is said to be very gentle and it teaches one that life is worth all its ups and downs. Some say it has an internal energy that is used for protection, prosperity and purification. The desert rose is said to remove energy blocks.... What I know for sure, is that it is a very cool and interestingmineral and looks awesome in my silver interpretations!
