Selenite, satin spar, desert rose, and gypsum flower are four varieties of the mineral gypsum; all four varieties show obvious crystalline structure. The four “crystalline” varieties of gypsum are sometimes grouped together and called selenite.
The etymology of selenite is through Middle English selinete, from Latin selenites, from Greek selēnitēs (lithos), literally, moonstone or stone of the moon, from selēnē (Moon). The ancients had a belief that certain transparent crystals waxed and waned with the moon. From the 15th century, “selenite” has referred specifically to the variety of gypsum that occurs in transparent crystals or crystalline masses
Selenite is considered to be a ‘mental body stone’ which also opens, aligns and clears the aura bodies.
Selenite is able to transmit light, energy, and information; this maybe why many like to use it for channeling.
Selenite can be used as a scanning device for those of us who are not visually orientated to get an overall view of a person’s light system to see the thought forms in their energy body. You can direct the energy towards your client or yourself by physically pointing the Selenite towards your client and mentally aligning with its vibration to examine the thought forms that are stored within each energy body.
Selenite wands it can be a powerful tool, but intent seems to be necessary in activating it. Use the Selenite wand when no other stones seem to be working. Selenite is a great mover of energy; however you should not try to activate the wand if you have been exposed to mind altering drugs in the past 48 hours or if you feel physically off balance (a cold, flu, etc.). One should be very clear and balanced when using the Selenite wand
