Selenite is a calming stone that is aligned with the crown chakra and soul star as well as other chakras further above. Its gentle and luminous presence reminds us of the white Light of Source. Its ethereal energy is manifested in gypsum, also known as Satin Spar, a crystal that borders on the edge between manifestation and the un-manifested. It will easily dissolve in water and cross over from the physical to the unphysical. Many specimens may also contain bubbles of water. While often found in long, striated sword-like pieces, it may also be carved or polished into hand-size pebbles or other shapes with varying levels of luminosity.
Selenite can be used for clearing the aura, aligning the spine and chakras with the crown and for facilitating communication with the higher realms. Due to its alignment with the transpersonal chakras and above, it is most useful in meditations, for clearing blockages and for building crystalline grids in one’s home. It is essentially a stone for Ascension and higher alignment and may be used to charge other stones or to work with them. Its combined calcium and sulphur base help one to shift the emotions and to move forward stepping out of one’s comfort zone.
