One of my top five crystals, Selenite deserves a place in every crystal connaisseurs collection. I call Selenite my energetic hepa filter because of its amazing ability to transmute negative or destructive energy into clean, positive energy. I have a Selenite sphere, rod, tower, tumbled and even some rough pieces all over my house and in my office. You just can’t have enough of this stuff. ancient cultures named several goddesses to symbolize the moon, the Greeks believed Selene to be the Moon itself. She, like her crystal, embodies tranquillity, blessing, love and light.
Selenite is celebrated for its transparency and heavenly radiance the crystal exudes. Like its namesake, the moon, it Selenite reflects a pure beam of white light into any environment in which it rests, and is believed to contain the liquid Light of Spirit. Many people use Selenite because of its innate ability to inspire a profound sense of tranquillity, and because it has a fine, high frequency and intensity of energy that surpasses nearly all other stones for opening, clearing, and activating the Crown and Higher Crown Chakras. Selenite is perfect for meditation, spiritual work, connecting to ancient wisdom and knowledge, and is one of the best crystals for accessing one’s spirit guides and the angelic realm.

Selenite is one of the few crystals that do not require cleansing as it has such a high vibration that no negative/ destructive energy can accumulate in it. Also it is worth noting that water is very corrosive to Selenite, so no need to dunk it… unless you wanna buy more :)
I often recommend placing selenite in your bedroom near your bed to help with insomnia.
Selenite is closely related to the other crystalline forms of Gypsum: Satin Spar, a compact fibrous variety that is generally translucent with a pearly chatoyant appearance; Desert Rose, most often bladed in the familiar shape of a rose with an outer druse of sand, or with sand throughout; and Gypsum Flower, an opaque variety usually attached to a matrix with spreading fibers forming a myriad of shapes, sometimes with severe curves and bends. While all have, at times, been grouped together and collectively called Selenite, the variety producing transparent, well-formed crystals remains the true Selenite.
