Selenite | A Gemstone of the Moon

Selenite, the stone, is named after Selene, the Goddess of the Moon. In mythology, Selene was paired with her brother Helios. It is believed that Selene and Helios adorned the east pediment of the Parthenon.

The two siblings, each driving a four-horsed chariot, framed a scene depicting the birth of Athena, with Helios and his chariot rising from the ocean on the left, and Selene and her chariot descending into the sea on the right.

For the world to exist, the Sun and the Moon have to be in a state of balance.

Selenite is a form of crystallised gypsum which is a soft sulfate mineral made of calcium sulfate dihydrate. With a rating of 2 on the Mohs scale, Selenite, as one of the softer stones, is a wonderful example of how we should move through this world in a state of gentleness.

Selenite is brittle and can easily break when it is not handled with care. Selenite is an angelic stone with purifying energy. It is beneficial when undergoing judgment as it can provide raw insights. It induces clarity of mind and allows humans to access angelic consciousness. It channels the Higher Self–the Light Body–into the Earth.

When one makes use of selenite, it decreases the shyness and reserve that one has towards their professional life. It can foster harmonious partnerships by bringing good insights so that an individual makes good judgments. Selenite is a particularly good aid in materialistic pursuits related to business and making a profit.

A sudden sensitivity to Selenite is an indicator that there is a good chance of reconciliation between two parties that have previously been in conflict. When used wisely, Selenite can uncover details regarding a relationship that has previously been overshadowed by pain, trauma and abuse.

Selenite has been used for scrying, visualising the future as well as uncovering the past. As Selenite holds impressions of events that have happened, it may also be used when the truth of an incident needs to be revealed.

Selenite’s energy clears etheric blockages and debris. It allows for a freer flow of energy through the higher chakras; particularly with the etheric chakras that facilitate connection and communion with the Higher Self.

Selenite clears or bridges blockages and densities in the energy field. The wands can be used to direct high-frequency energy into the body which in turn can stimulate physical healing.
