Selenite explained

Selenite is known for being a highly cleansing stone. It is said to be named from the Greek word for moon, perhaps due to the white luster that Selenite has. It is a soft stone so care needs to be taken when using Selenite as it could scratch or break but on the plus side, it makes it easy to carve so there are a number of different shapes available such as spirals and hearts. 

Selenite can dissolve in water so you need to be careful not to get the stone wet. Selenite does not often get made into jewellery as body sweat also counts as water so it can easily be ruined. Some like to wear Selenite pendents when taking part in rituals but great care needs to be taken to keep it dry. It does not need to be charged or cleansed as it has the ability to actually cleanse other crystals. 


Selenite corresponds with the crown chakra and the Moon. It is linked to the star sign of Taurus and the element air. It also corresponds with the sabbaths, Imbolc and Ostara in the Pagan Wheel of the year.
