Metaphysical Beliefs – Selenite is a powerful conductor of energy. The vibrations from this crystal can channel energy where you direct it to go. Selenite charging plates are used to place your other crystals on when charging energy. Some believe you can place Selenite sticks along electrical cords to help with energy cost. Selenite clears away darkness and helps you avoid difficult situations in your life. It can bring you clarity of the mind and expand your consciousness.
Gemology – Selenite (CaSO4·2H2O) is the gem quality form of the mineral Gypsum. Very soft and easily scratched, it demands appreciation for its delicacy. It is extremely sensitive to humidity and water. The visual phenomenon is caused by fiber like inclusions in the stone that case light to move in rays across the stone. Selenite is also found in nature in form of Desert Roses. Commonly found in cave systems, it can grow to tens of feet in diameter. Selenite has a monoclinic structure and is a 2 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness.
