Do you know what a sandrose is? The rose of the sands is a type of evaporitic rock composed of soluble minerals. It takes its name from the town of Roses in France, where it was first described.


What makes this rock type so unique is its lenticular crystallization. This means that the crystals are not randomly scattered, but take on a lens-like shape. This gives the rock a very distinctive appearance, which has made it popular with collectors.

Sand Rose is a rare type of sedimentary rock found in the Sahara Desert which is one of the most inhospitable places on the planet, so it is very difficult to find this type of rock.

The Sand Rose is a valuable resource because it contains high levels of soluble minerals. This makes it an ideal material for construction and manufacturing.
