DESERT STONE - Wester Desert of Egypt - Gilf Kebir - Natural - brown

 

I'm offering here one beautiful natural “Desert Stone” from the Gilf Kebir Plateau - Western Desert of Egypt - Border to Sudan and Libya. Those days it's impossible to travel there. It's military controlled because of political issues.

 

Gilf Kebir is a plateau in the New Valley region of the remote southwest corner of Egypt, and southeast Libya. Its name translates as "the Great Barrier". This 7,770 km2 (3,000 sq mi) sandstone plateau, roughly the size of Puerto Rico, rises 300 m (980 ft) from the Libyan Desert floor. The name Gilf Kebir was given to the plateau by Prince Kamal el Dine Hussein in 1925, as it had no local name. It is known for its rugged beauty, remoteness, geological interest, and the dramatic cliff paintings-pictographs and rock carvings-petroglyphs which depict an earlier era of abundant animal life and human habitation.
