The Healing Properties of Selenite

What is Selenite?

Selenite is a crystal variety of the mineral Gypsum and it comes in several forms - Satin Spar, Desert Rose and Gypsum Flower to name but three. It is luminous and beautiful and, not only does it attract energy and light, it doesn't need to be recharged, making it one of the most important crystals in your toolkit.

Selenite is named after the Greek Goddess of the Moon, Selene. Selene was the Titan goddess of the moon. She was depicted as a woman riding side-saddle on a horse or driving a chariot drawn by a pair of winged steeds. Her lunar sphere or crescent was either a crown set upon her head or the fold of a raised, shining cloak.

Selenite helps to clear the mind, expanding the awareness of the self. It opens the crown and higher crown chakras and accesses angelic consciousness and higher guidance. It can be used to access past lives as well as future lives. Selenite is a calming stone that instils deep peace and is excellent for meditation or spiritual work. It assists judgement and insight. It clears confusion and aids in seeing the deeper picture.
