  • The Milky Way over milky-white sand dunes.

The main component of sand in most of the world's deserts and beaches is quartz. However, the famous dunes of White Sands National Monument are made of gypsum sand and selenite crystal. The result is a gleaming landscape that looks like hills of snow in a hot climate.

Gypsum usually dissolves in water, which makes gypsum sand relatively rare. However, this area of New Mexico is so dry that the water has evaporated and left the gypsum sand behind which has spread to cover roughly 275 sq. mi (712 sq. km). This makes this the planet's largest gypsum dunefield.

  • Hi, been wanting to post this when it’s made, it was created by my business partner Rivera when we had a salad business, the young lad was very creative at making recipes, this is a Mango Salsa, chopped mangos, red or white onions, finely diced jalapeños, chopped Cilantro & Garlic Salt and some water (small amount) mix and mash a little, it’s great over baked Salmon!👍🏽#hanzonation #elpasostrong #elpasotx #lascruces #albuquerque #newmexico #elpaso #utep
