Selenite is a crystal clear variety of gypsum that is found on every continent on the globe however there is an abundance found in parts of Mexico and the United States. It is found growing in sheets but also can be found growing in “blades”. Selenite is usually found in caves or evaporated bodies of water. It is a pale stone that looks like the moon.

What is selenite used for?

Selenite is a very cleansing crystal that is sold in its pure form, or shaped into wants, discs, spheres and many other shapes. I personally use selenite to cleanse and remove unwanted energies from my home, my reiki room and other crystals and gemstone jewelry that I wear. I have a cluster of selenite that I rest my pendulum on, a round flat disc that I rest my crystals on and I also have a sphere that I keep in my reiki room. I typically cleanse my selenite during the full moon by leaving them outdoors to bath in the moonlight however Selenite is SELF CLEANSING! Selenite is named after Selene, the Greek Goddess of the moon.

Selenite is good for:



Cleansing and charging other crystals


Helps with memory

Griding and protecting the home
