Saharan Sand

$20.00 Sold out
This sand was collected from the sand dunes of the largest hot desert in the world—the Sahara.

The Sahara covers most of the northern half of the African continent along the Tropic of Cancer and makes up about 8% of Earth’s total land area. The only deserts larger than the Sahara are the Antarctic and Arctic cold deserts.

About half of the desert consists of hyperarid seas of sand, called ergs. Much of the rest consists of dry, sparse shrublands covered in a stony “desert pavement”. Most of the desert averages less than 20 mm (0.8”) of rainfall each year; however, the region experiences long cycles of wet and dry periods thought to correspond to Earth’s axial procession.

Saharan Sand in a 1 oz. jar.
