“Stone of The Lightbody”

Selenite crystals are high vibration stones that will move your spiritual growth forward quickly. They are a stone of the third eye chakra, the crown chakra and the soul star chakra.

A protective stone, Selenite shields a person or space from outside influences.  Selenite can evoke protection from the angelic realm and also dispels negative energy.  The powerful energies of Selenite help one connect with one's guides, guardians, Christ Consciousness and Higher Self.  Selenite can be held or placed around a person to facilitate such a connection.

Selenite is most effective in cleansing and charging of other gemstones. It must never be ingested (as an elixir) but it may be laid on the body or run over the aura to gain the needed effect.

It will also promote the recollection of dreams and past lives for anyone open to them. It is said that if one keeps a Selenite in a love charm bag it will ensure fidelity “until the seas run dry”.

Selenite intensifies and focuses the healing energy into a direct white laser stream, perfect for creating a 'grid' around an area with light. By tracing the corners and wall-meetings of a room, or edges of a garden, Selenite will set a protective boudary of light, purity and peace. Do not do this around a person's aura, unless you are standing within their aura, with your back to them, directing the light grid outwards away from them. Using a wand across someone's aura may literally cut through the aura, and is potentially dangerous.Selenite is named for Selene, Greek goddess of the Moon because of its moon-like glow. Exchanged between lovers, it will bring about reconciliation.

  • Brings mental clarity
  • Helps one to access angelic guidance
  • Quickly unblocks stagnant energy
  • Instills a deep peace

It makes a wonderful protection stone. 


How to use selenite

Place on the Third-Eye, or Heart Chakra, to feel its energy flow into the Crown Chakra. Once it removes any stagnant energy, blockages or distortions within the Crown the energy of Selenite will then move into the higher chakras to trigger the flow of energy from the Stellar Gateway Chakra directly into the Soul Star Chakra. This is why Selenite is known as, The Lightbody Stone, as it anchors the lightbody into the physical body.

Use a selenite wand to locate energy flow blockages and remove them. Squeeze the selenite wand gently in your hand and slowly run it over the body just an inch or 2 away. After you use the wand a few times, you will begin to pick up on subtle differences in how the selenite wand feels in your hand. It will feel different where there is an energy blockage. Healers often use them in this way. Hold the wand over the area where the energy is different to help pull negative energy out and restore a healthy energy flow.

Wear a selenite gemstone necklace and earrings to keep the healing, balancing vibrations near you during the day.

Place a chunk of selenite mineral rock or a selenite wand on your nightstand and close to where you spend most of your time.

Place a selenite sphere at the corners of your home to create a peaceful, safe environment that will not be disturbed by outside influences.

Some say that rubbing a smooth piece of Selenite will help you enter into the realm of dreams, intuition, Spiritual Guides and Angels, but the most common benefit is that it will calm and lift your energy when making contact for more than five minutes.


Selenite has a variety of specific transformational qualities

  • Brings the fifth dimensional light into third dimensional matter.
  • Quickly opens balances and activates any chakra and is especial good with the third eye, crown chakra, and the soul star chakra above the head. It’s the most powerful clearing stone for the upper chakras.

  • Clears and energize all the glands of the body.
  • Clears all blockages in the energy field.
  • Cuts cords of dysfunctional energy from the etheric body.
  • Ideal for purification and energetic cleansing, which makes it a perfect tool for healers.
  • Directs high frequency energy into the body, stimulating spiritual, physical and emotional healing.
  • Opens the inner self to the spiritual world.
  • Magnifies the energy of what ever is placed on it many times over (including other crystals).

Selenite is used in crystal healing for removing blocks to healing, dissolving secondary gain issues, confusion, particularly from alzheimer's disease or dementia, aligning the spine, decreasing epilepsy and seizures.It also promotes flexibility, assists with absorption of calcium and other minerals and vitamins. Selenite is used to promote fertility, increase the libido, and is a protector of pregnancy and motherhood.  


Selenite is a crystal which carries and exists at one of highest frequency vibrations in the mineral kingdom. It atoms vibrate at a closer speed to light - than almost any other mineral. It's sheer white brings purity and White Angelic light to any area it is in. It is Light in crystal formation. By just spending a little quiet time gently rubbing a natural blade of Selenite, we can connect more clearly with our Higher Self. This brings light into the aura, and expands our awareness of Oneness.

It is perfect for conducting healing, protective and loving energy through. It is important to note that this should be done after much experience with Selenite, and others crystal energies. Selenite intensifies and focuses the healing energy into a direct white laser stream, perfect for creating a 'grid' around an area with light. By tracing the corners and wall-meetings of a room, or edges of a garden, Selenite will set a protective boundary of light, purity and peace. Do not do this around a person's aura, unless you are standing within their aura, with your back to them, directing the light grid outwards away from them. Using a wand across someone's aura may literally cut through the aura, and is potentially dangerous.


It is advisable to work outdoors in Nature with Selenite, or with other much more grounding crystal energies, and do conscious grounding of your energy afterwards. We must integrate into our physical daily lives the Light which we are able to channel - integrate the lessons that are available to us by connecting with our own Higher Selves, and Angelic Light.

Selenite is a stone of mental clarity. This clarity enhances mental flexibility and enables strong decision making abilities.  It can affect every day life as full mental clarity into play to lesson confusion and mental disorientation.

Selenite is also a stone of truth and honesty. This promotes good business practices as well as honesty in other types of relationships.

The name selenite comes from the Greek word Selene, meaning moon. Selenite is associated with the moon it is named for. This brings associations and energies of the unconscious, instinct, subconscious, and emotional well-being.  The moon association also brings water energy to the fore, creating the flexibility and intuition.

Though Selenite is associated with the moon, it is also a sweet angel stone. It is used for contacting and communicating with angels for guidance. It can also be used for finding and working with other spirit guides.


Selenite remove energy blocks, particularly from the physical and etheric bodies. It can also remove energy blocks in the bodies of other crystals and stones. This makes it excellent for enhancing the properties of other stones and for clearing and charging them. It is also an excellent stone for protection grids, as one visitor pointed out. Additionally, Selenite is used by some to block or ameliorate EMF radiation.

Selenite is a stone of  powerful intuition and psychic awareness through its influence on the third eye chakra.  You can access past lives and do past life work and healing with it. It is also beneficial for psychic efforts, especially clairvoyance.

Selenite properties are not always conducive to relaxing meditation. Selenite mineral rock has a high vibration rate which often excites the mind, rather than relaxing it for quiet meditation. If you find that you are able to reach a quiet, meditative state with a selenite wand or a fishtail or angel wing selenite, there are a couple ways to meditate with it. Selenite meditation can help establish a connection with the Angelic Kingdom or turn negative energy into positive energy, in keeping with selenite meaning

Selenite can be used to dispel negativity, both on an emotional and an etheric level. This makes it a good stone for protection. This energy combined with its angel associations makes it outstanding for angelic protection. You need only hold the selenite and pray or ask with intent for angels to protect you.

Selenite is a stone of love, which on the surface may seem odd. Its properties of mental flexibility and honesty, help maintain a loving relationship comfortably and with ease. It also brings harmony and inner peace which allow for recognizing love and acting in a loving manner.

The giant crystals in the Naica Cave of Crystals are Selenite Gypsum.

Angel Wings Selenite, also known as  Fishtail Selenite.  This is a natural genuine fishtail. 

Caring for your Selenite Crystal

One of the things that makes selenite a unique crystal, is its ability to constantly self cleanse and recharge itself. In fact, it's only one of two crystals that can do this, with apophyllite being the other. Other crystals need to be periodically cleansed of negative or residual energies, through methods such as a salt water bath. But because selenite self cleanses and recharges, there is never a need for you to cleanse or charge this crystal.

Because selenite is a soft crystal it should be handled with care and not stored with other crystals which may scratch its surface. When storing it away, wrap it in a soft fabric such as satin or silk, so that its surface will not be damaged.

Selenite is water soluble, so for this reason it should never be rinsed or immersed in water. Doing so will cause its surface to erode.

It's best to keep selenite out of direct sunlight, as this may cause its surface to crack and lose its luster.

To clean off your selenite crystal, simply dust it gently with a gentle cloth. Never use cleaning products or polishes on it.

Feng Shui

Selenite carries one of the highest vibrations and promotes positive energy within a room or home. A complimentary stone, Selenite can be placed in abundance anywhere, releasing and repelling negativity or enhancing the energies of other stones.


Mineral Properties

Selenite, also known as Satin Spar and Desert Rose is a clear variety of gypsum. Selenite crystals often form as seawater evaporates. As they become heavier, these crystals sink to the bottom of the sea bed. Strangely enough Selenite can be permanently damage if exposed to water, so do not cleanse or immerse it in water for any reason.

Mohs Hardness of 2 with a monoclinic crystal structure

Selenite, satin spar, desert rose, and gypsum flower are four varieties of the same mineral gypsum; all four varieties show obvious crystalline structure.

As a form of Gypsum, Selenite is a natural insulator and will appear much warmer to the touch than other crystals.  Industrial grades of Gypsum are used in making sheet rock drywall, concrete, and Plaster of Paris.  Both Selenite and Satin Spar are often vitreous (glassy), pearly and silky to the touch, and both may exhibit chatoyancy (cat's eye reflections).  They also both contain a fibre optic quality, have the ability to double refract, and some specimens are fluorescent or phosphorescent.
