Selenite is a crystallized form of gypsum. The name Selenite comes from the Greek word for moon and means “moon glow," and these Selenite Blocks do glow with a shimmery, pearl-like luster. The grain of the Selenite gives a lustrous shine that goes down the length of the wand to create a beautiful visual effect. The powerful vibration of Selenite opens the Crown and Higher Chakras and is excellent for meditation or spiritual work. Selenite calms and brings deep peace, and offers access to past and future lives. Selenite brings mental clarity, clearing confusion and revealing the bigger picture behind problems. A protective stone, Selenite shields a person or space from outside influences.
