Selenite is a crystal variety of the mineral gypsum. It is a very soft mineral which can be easily scratched with a fingernail and therefore not recommended for jewellery. If placed in water, Selenite will revert to gypsum.
Selenite provides for clarity of the mind, expanding ones awareness of the self and of ones surroundings. It opens the crown and higher crown chakras and accesses angelic consciousness and higher guidance. It can be used to access past lives as well as future lives. Selenite is a calming stone that instills deep peace and is excellent for meditation or spiritual work. It assists judgement and insight. It clears confusion and aids in seeing the deeper picture.
Selenite aligns the spinal column and promotes flexibility. It corrects deformities of the skeletal system and can stabilize epileptic disorders. It is used to improve disorders associated with metal poisoning due to teeth fillings and can reverse the effects of "free radicals" in the cell structure. Effects that can be overcome include cancer, tumors, age spots, wrinkles and light sensitivity.
