Selenite is a crystal of ancient times. It is named after Selene, the Greek goddess of the full moon. The pale-bluish, moon-like reflections in some of the first specimens gave rise to its name.

Selenite is a transparent variety of crystallized gypsum. The crystals have a linear structure, forming in layers, and are traditionally tabular in shape. This mineral occurs in clay beds and around hot springs as an evaporate. The long, clear selenite crystals from Mexico are the most desired. However, the semi-transparent material from Morocco is quite lovely and is typically fashioned into an assortment of wonderful shapes for tools and talismans.

Selenite is additionally available in a powder form. A small amount can be placed in a spray bottle, and after filling it with distilled or spring water, the powder will completely dissolve.

Utilizing selenite spray is a fast and effective method for clearing a home or office of negative or old, congested energies. Its intensity is remarkable; it can clear any auric field. It exposes illusions with light and clears blockages and debris, thus ensuring a peaceful atmosphere.

The magic of selenite stems from its ability to instantaneously clear and unlock the gateway to the etheric chakras (third-eye, crown and soul chakra above the crown.)  Selenite emits an energy that can intensify the awareness of the beam of light that bridges the heart to the brain. As its energy awakens the brain, the neurological structure between the heart and brain is stimulated and strengthened. This activation between the two aids in developing psychic abilities. It is said that selenite, in its purest translucent form, has an etheric quality that dwells between light and matter.

Selenite is, no doubt, an optimal stone for meditation. It inspires a deep peace as it elevates one’s consciousness easily into the higher planes of wakefulness and inner experience. It can be a powerful tool for psychic communication, enhancing one’s ability to connect with his or her higher self, the angelic realm, spirit guides or loved ones on the other side.
