In Greek, Selenite means stone from the moon, representing its ethereal moonlight and is named after the Greek Goddess of the Moon, Selene. Ancient scholars believed that Selenite, as well as many other transparent crystals “waxed” and “waned” with the moon, meaning its strength would ebb and flow at different times during the month. It is a satin spar which has been revered for its pure white shiny beauty for centuries.
The close relationship Selenite has with the moon draws many people to use it when working with all things found on the subconscious level, including channelling, telepathy, psychic readings, intuitive and spiritual work, and as an aid in helping others release major energy blockages. It’s especially useful to quiet an overactive mind, which in turn is beneficial for restoring mental clarity.
Selenite is often used by healers, energy workers, and other metaphysical practitioners. It is most commonly known for the ability to clear energy blocks, to dispel any negative entities, to cleanse and rejuvenate auras, and as a tool to unlock our higher consciousness.

All crystals at my house are hand-picked by me, with a focus on their energy and beauty. Each crystal is cleansed and charged under the moonlight. Selenite is delicate so please handle with care. Do not wet Selenite, clean with a soft cloth, make-up brush or air duster.
