Information about Selenite

An interesting mineral which can form in massive, long crystal ‘blades’. The best example of these blades can be seen in Mexico, in a place called Cueva de los Cristales, or ‘Cave of the Crystals’, attached to the Naica Mine.

Crystals of up to four metres long have formed there – unfortunately, the largest we sell is around 25CM!

Due to the fibrous nature of the mineral, working with it can be somewhat risky without adequate protection – it is usually sold worked or polished, however. Most pieces are sold as carved decorations – mostly lamps, candle holders, tea light holders, etc – due to the beautiful effect it displays when in direct light.

Spirituality and Crystal Healing with Selenite

White selenite is one of the four varieties of gypsum. Transparent and colourless, the substance is named from the Ancient Greek word for the Moon because of its pearly sheen.

The clarity of the crystal reflects its power to clarify the mind and enhance mental flexibility which enables strong decision making.

The powerful vibrations clear, open, and activate the Crown and Higher Chakras making it an excellent accompaniment for all types of spiritual work. Selenite can also be used to strengthen memory which is good for dream recall and past-life work.

Selenite promotes powerful intuition and psychic awareness when used with the Third Eye chakra.
