Selenite or ‘liquid light’ as it is often called, is a variety of gypsum that is composed of calcium sulfate dehydrate; thus meaning it has two molecules of water. Selenite is named after the Greek goddess of the moon, Selene. The moon association and its composition, bring a water energy to the crystal. This water energy connects it with the water composition and energy of our physical bodies to promote healing from within by touch. Having only a two on the Mohs hardness scale, and being naturally tubular, makes it easily shaped and smoothed into a natural healing wand.
Selenite is also known as an angel stone. It removes energy blocks, brings clarity to your spiritual understanding of the universe and your place in it. Meditation and spiritual development are eased and promoted by selenite. These crystals are particularly effective in stabilizing and healing the emotional body and aura; bringing emotions under calm control.
