A mineral blossom of selenite and borite, desert rose is a very special stone. It's believed that each stone carries its own individual, particular spirit guardian. Traditionally, it's worn for protection and clarity, and used to aid in meditation and focus.
Desert rose can be used for grounding and balance. It is believed by some to have a strong impact on the physical body; for this reason, it is also sometimes associated with pregnancy, labor, and childbirth.
Due to its selenite, this is a particularly cleansing crystal, and can be used to cleanse energies—as well as other crystals.
