Every crystal collector, and I do mean EVERY one – old/young, experienced/seasoned – needs selenite in their collection. No other mineral quite compares to the soothing, cleansing and purifying energy of this fabulous stone. This was one of the first stones I added to my collection as I was getting started, and I firmly believe selenite is a magical must-have for any crystal collector, energy worker, lightworker, or healer (my chiropractor keeps one under his table as it helps align the spine, and support the back). It’s a stone of mental clarity, truth and honesty. It is named after the moon goddess, Selene, for the ancient Greeks believed she was trapped in the stone, giving it its glow. And in this wonderful listing, I am pleased to bring you Moonlight in the palm of your hand!
Selenite is very cleansing and is often used to “charge” and cleanse other crystals. It diffuses and transmute negative energy from objects and people and aid in healing. It’s a stone of both the mind and the angelic realms, working with the high chakras. It’s a very gentle stone, and helps to quiet the mind, wonderful for meditation and other spiritual work, as well as your yoga practice or to quiet the space after a stressful day. But make note: for some, selenite is very energizing and enlivening; for this reason, spend time with it before placing it in a room where you sleep!
Selenite connects you with the higher realms, opening the higher chakras, and tapping into the Divine Mind. It helps to bring peace and connect us with the angels offering guidance, and to alleviate stress and anxiety (when my 4 year old is upset, she asks to hold a piece of selenite!). It’s soothing, calming and loving. But don’t be fooled by its serenity and peacefulness (two things it has in abundance) – this is a high vibration stone. It is an angelic stone. I call this our “guardian angel” stone.
Because they’re so cleansing, they remove blockages and roadblocks, and assist in bringing prosperity and success to one’s career or business. Have them on your work desk to keep the energy clear, the creativity flowing, and to bring abundance. Selenite also helps to clear the mind of blockages, increasing intuitive abilities, and aiding in decision making. They quiet worries and still the mind. How sweet it is!
HOW TO USE IT
What makes selenite a favorite of mine is how useful it is. It’s wonderful in crystal grids and layouts to call in angels, spirit guides, ease fears and to soothe. But my favorite way to use it is throughout the house to form a protective (guardian angel) grid around our home. Paired with black tourmaline (which offers a watch dog, negativity-busting boost!), it creates a protective shield around your home, keeping negativity away, and harboring peace within. I place a piece of selenite (+ black tourmaline) in each corner of the home. I place one above each doorway (front, back, sliding doors, whatever you have) and one above each window. Any space through which energy moves should have a piece of selenite above it.
The other favorite way to use selenite is as a cleansing stone. It clears and cleans any other mineral or gem it comes into contact with; place other stones on a slab of selenite overnight, or for a few days, to recharge them. It is said that selenite itself doesn’t need cleaning, but I give my working pieces (those above my doors and windows) a smudge with white sage now and again.
You will receive ONE (1) gorgeously polished Selenite Sphere from the lot pictured. They measure approximately 2 inches in diameter. Please know that these are hand carved selenite spheres and as such there may be slight variation in size and transparency from the photos. However, I have hand picked each piece to be as beautiful as possible 🙂
Please note: this is a group listing, and I cannot individually photograph or choose a stone by request from the photos. Rest assured that not only did I hand pick every stone in this listing, but these selenite spheres are each polished beautifully: like having the moon captured in the palm of your hand!
Spheres are powerful and potent Earth medicine to have around, especially for those of you not able to work with your crystals as much as you want to or need to. They’re very good for family living spaces or as home or office decor. The reason for this is their shape. Circles and spheres hold heavy symbolism in many cultures and civilizations around the world and throughout time. They represent infinite energy, and indeed, this is what they radiate. When a gemstone is carved into a sphere, it sends its properties out equally in all directions, through every space, into every nook and cranny with minimal effort from you. Of course, our crystals like it when we work with them and they want to be of service; but spheres will sit quietly, radiating their awesomeness into your space all on their own. Just give them a stand, keep them dust-free, smudge them to clear them every once in a while, and enjoy their beauty!
REMEMBER! Selenite is a type of gypsum, and is a very soft stone. It may dissolve in water, so please don’t ever submerge or rinse your selenite under water. Please find an alternative method to clean and cleanse these stones, such as burning sage or palo santo wood, to preserve your selenite.
Lastly: While I usually ONLY photograph my crystals in natural light, please note that the last two photographs captured the selenite indoors. This is because the flash given off by these amazing pieces is almost more accurate indoors than out! They positively glow!
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite wands and desert selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
