The translucent white nature of Selenite represents spiritual purity, light, and connection to the angelic realms. It is one of the most sacred crystals throughout history. It is widely used for energetic clearing. Selenite is a high-vibrational stone so it raises the energy of the environment in which it resides which is why is a great tool to use to charge other crystals. It is thought to never need recharging itself. We still like to put it under the full moon every now and again though.
The name ‘Selenite’ derives from the Greek goddess Selene, the goddess of the moon. It’s also called the Satin Spar, Maria Glass, or Desert Rose. But that is only the literal meaning of Selenite – there exist important spiritual meanings, too.
The spiritual meaning of Selenite is rejuvenation and divine feminine energy. It symbolizes the angelic realms and allows us to communicate with angelic beings.
Selene’s ethereal energy is embedded in this soft and powerful crystal. It is easy to feel the moon goddess’s energy envelop you as you gaze upon its brilliance and move it around your energetic body and auric field.
By becoming aware of the energy of Selenite, we can begin to feel our worries and thoughts fade away. We begin to grow calmer and more tranquil. Like the moon shining above us at night, Selenite provides pure white light when we are facing any of life’s darkness.
Selenite is a flaky crystal so be careful with it.
