Selenite A variety of gypsum, selenite is a very soft crystal. Because of this, it is easy to carve and you will often find it carved into interesting shapes, towers, and wands. It is primarily a protective stone and is a soft, pearly white. It is also a crystal that does not absorb or store energy so it does not need cleansing. It serves as a cleansing stone for other crystals. It is also an amplifying stone associated with the third eye and crown chakra. It appears naturally, carved, cut or tumbled, and polished. Selenite helps with protecting against negativity, cleansing negative energy, forgiveness, cleansing other crystals, cleansing the aura, and connection with intuition and the Divine. You can place it on or near the third eye or crown chakra. It works well with all other crystals. Due to selenite’s softness, it can get damaged easily and should be stored separately from other crystals. Never expose it to water or salt.
