Selenite is one of the most important tools in many metaphysical wellness worker’s arsenals. It is an abundant stone known as Satin Spar because of the milky sheen that illuminates from the surface. While selenite is found most often in countries like Australia, Greece, Mexico and the USA, those looking to profit specifically from the selenite healing properties should look for the long, clear selenite stones coming out of Mexico.
This stone received its name from the Greek goddess of the moon, Selene. This selenite meaning is easy to see when it reflects light, often appearing as a rock fallen direct from the moon. Formed from hydrous calcium sulfate, this mineral belongs to the family of gypsum crystals. Its monoclinic crystal system develops into long columns. Before being polished, selenite can be recognized for its fibrous striations that run down the length of the stone. The selenite crystal forms typically in clay beds, or around hot springs. Due to its classification as an evaporate, selenite healing properties have a tendency to flow in a way similar to water.
When connecting with the third eye and crown chakras, the selenite meaning is one of complete positivity and purity. Once the power of the selenite flows into the crown chakra, it will open, clear and activate the energy. The chakras will feel completely purified, and one should experience a liberated sense of self, free of negativity or inhibitions. This is the ideal stone for connecting with spirit guides or guardian angels. Due to its programmability, it is one of the best facilitators for transmitting the advice and information that one is seeking from their guide. It connects people to their highest level of consciousness where they are most open and accepting of symbolic messaging.
