Selenite: Its Significance, Healing Properties And Uses In Gem Therapy
Selenite is a translucent and soft magic stone, which has many properties, sometimes unknown. The following article will delve into the selenite’s importance in gemology and gem therapy, its most common uses, as well as its benefits for zodiac signs and chakras.
Selenite: Meaning in gemology
Selenite can be considered a variety of translucent gypsum, whose main deposits are found in the United States, Spain, Mexico, Morocco and Russia.
Its name means “moonstone”, since it is named after the goddess Selene, who, in Greek mythology, was linked to the White Moon, a symbol of perfection and purity.
Selenite is a soft stone that can be easily scratched. It is a very pure and fibrous kind of gypsum, and it has a white or yellowish colour. It is a pure, fragile and very vulnerable stone that can be easily cut. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to handle it with caution and keep it away from water (which dissolves it).
Sometimes, in gemology, selenite is also called a satin spar or Mary’s glass.

Selenite’s healing properties and uses in gem therapy
Gem therapy allows the human body to recover from diseases and illnesses through the use of magic stones.Accordingly, selenite acts as a sedative; it eases off your joint pain, migraines and even stomach ache. It strengthens tissues and boosts your sexual vigour.
Those who are in favour of the use of selenite in gem therapy consider it the great enemy of aging, as it helps erase wrinkles. Its power is also linked to the healing of skin diseases, such as acne or psoriasis.
On a mental level, it provides the mind with perfect clarity and it allows you to develop telepathic powers. If you place a piece of selenite near you at night, it will help you sleep well.
Selenite is ideal for meditation and also for overcoming some mental blocks and complexes, as it brings back buried memories and experiences.
Remember that this article is only informative: it is not recommended to abandon medical or psychological treatments in favour of gem therapy, since this is only an alternative and complementary therapy, never a substitute one.
How to clean selenite?
Magic stones are like plants that need to be cared for and fed. In nature, magic stones such as selenite benefit from the natural energy of the Sun and the Moon. However, when you have them in your house, they are deprived of that energy, so you will have to help them clean and recharge themselves.
To eliminate past vibrations, you can expose the selenite crystal to the Sun, or place it on a quartz geode. Due to its own composition, it is important that you never clean selenite with water, even if it comes from spring because it will dissolve.
When you buy (or you are given) any magic stone, it is recommended to purify it as soon as possible, in fact, as soon as you receive it. As it has been manipulated by several people before you, it is advisable to eliminate the vibrations that it has absorbed until it reached your hands.
Selenite and the chakras
Selenite provides clarity to your mind and opens the seventh chakra, the crown chakra. It is a stone that has ideal vibrations for reaching serenity and well-being. It is also a great tool for meditation and spiritual work: selenite increases your connection with the etheric plane.
Which zodiac signs could benefit from selenite?
Each zodiac sign is usually associated with several magic stones. Their connection may be due to historical functions or to the stone’s own power.
In the latter case, it is possible that the stones reinforce the character traits of the zodiac signs or that they help them with certain weaknesses, for the sake of transparency. So, selenite is usually linked to those people born between April 20 and May 21, that is, to the Taurus natives; but also to Cancer and Aquarius natives.
Therefore, it would be a good idea to give a Taurus native a pendant or a pair of selenite stone earrings as a present, so that they receive all its power. In fact, this is one of the most elegant magic stones. It is also possible to find selenite in the form of a lamp.
Fun facts about selenite
Like the Moon, selenite is a very feminine stone. It makes menstruation less unpleasant, it provides well-being and peace of mind to pregnant women, and it calms down the excitement of children at an early age, such as the nursing stage.
A large block of selenite placed in a room provides a serene atmosphere. The proximity of a candle increases its effectiveness. If you have a selenite stone in your office, you will be able to concentrate and work more effectively.
