Selenite is a type of Gypsum which is a hydrated calcium sulphate. It is white and can appear transparent from one angle and opaque from another angle. The name Selene is from the Ancient Greek word for moon.
Selenite is associated with the third eye and crown chakras, as well as the etheric chakras above the crown of the head. It has a very high energy of white light, quickly opening and activating the higher chakras. It helps in expanding awareness and also facilitates the experience of receiving inner guidance. A selenite wand pointed at the third eye can feel like a gust of wind going into the forehead and out the top of the head.
Selenite clarifies thought. It is also good for cleansing the aura and clearing energy blockages. A grid of selenite around the body brings in healing light to help at all levels of our being.
Selenite is wonderful to have in the home as it brings a pure white light of energy into the environment which is uplifting and protects from outside influences. Selenite is also perfect as the centre crystal for a grid, sending the pure energy out into the world.
