Selenite

Cleansing    Light    Protection

Selenite, also known as satin spar, desert rose, or gypsum flower are four crystal structure varieties of the mineral gypsum. These four varieties of gypsum may be grouped together and called selenite.

This stone received its name from the Greek goddess of the moon, Selene. This selenite meaning is easy to see when it reflects light, often appearing as a rock fallen direct from the moon.

Through radiating light energy, it promotes purity and honesty. By clearing energy blockages, selenite allows for liquid-like energy fluidity.

The selenite crystal typically forms in clay beds, or around hot springs in Australia, Greece, Mexico and the USA.
