Egypt black and white desert







Black and white represents the two colors that characterize two desert areas from Egypt. The Black Desert and the White Desert are both parts of the Egypt's Western Desert and both are in the big depression terrain. In the Black Desert the sand is like a gold copper and the grit has a black crust, things that make the desert to have a dramatic look. The earth has a crust full of slits from which the magma still flows slowly offering a spectacle that attracts the tourists who come to visit this place. Maybe the most captivating part of the Western Desert is the White Desert where from the floor rise cusps of chalk. Other forms of the land can be seen here that reminds of the times when the Western Desert had wet sectors. Actually, the present floor of the White Desert was a enormous lake's bottom. The organic matter formed stones of pyrite that still can be found, as well as some shells traces. The result of the wind erosion and of the moved sand is the formations of chalk that give the desert the white aspect. The terrain of the White Desert changes from small round mounds to phallic forms of bigger heights or to fascinating twisted shapes. The white chalk is combined with sand and seems to cover everything. Numerous desert foxes, white and small, can be seen looking for food. Crystal Mountain is situated between the White Desert and the Black Desert; this area is known for its quarts crystals; you can even take some crystals with you, as souvenirs from these amazing and mysterious places. No matter if you visit the Black Desert or the White Desert you will be amazed by the view of these places, especially by seeing the sunset in desert.
