Bulk Purchase Specimen
You are buying one rock. You will receive one rock like the ones in the photographs, not the exact rocks shown. Photographing and listing every crystal separately adds a lot in labor costs. We pass that savings on to you with lower prices and higher quality than the competition.

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. Gypsum is a common, rock-forming mineral, with thick, extensive beds formed by the evaporation of extremely saline waters.

Selenite is the ancient Greek word for the Moon. Selenite is the colorless and transparent variety of gypsum that shows a pearl like luster and has been described as having a moon like glow. Non-toxic to animals as well as people, gypsum is safe to use in housing. It is used in drywall and the yard and garden, where it may be used to condition soil. Often fibrous, it can be easily broken or scratched. Selene is also the name of the Greek Goddess of the Moon (a.k.a. Artemis or Diana).

HEALING PROPERTIES

Selenite is a strong activator of the Third Eye, allowing access to the hidden senses and intuitive gifts of clairvoyance and clear knowing. It does this by opening pathways between the Third-Eye and the Crown Energy Center.

It is the activation of these centers that are directly associated with the functions of the brain that makes it so potent. It allows you to blend your intuition and sensory perceptions with the wisdom you have gained from education, study, passions, pursuits and life experiences. One way you may experience this is by feeling like your mind is clear, and you are not distracted by random thoughts.

Yet, If you allow yourself to connect with your insights, you may find that you are able to envision new things that seem to pop as ah-ha moments. It is easier to see metaphors that allow you to follow a situation much further than before. You are able to envision possible obstacles and outcomes with new clarity.

In addition, Desert Rose physically represents the many layers of any situation and offers a new way to look at them. It is as if you now see each aspect for its own unique feature and can deal with them one at a time or appreciate them as a whole. It is through the ability to see the micro and the macro that alternatives present themselves.

Desert Rose may also be used to support more active dream states, astral travel or astral projection. By keeping it near where you sleep, it can help create a healthy balance between drifting to far away destinations, while feeling tethered to your physical body. This may help you remember aspects or the details of your dreams.

Desert Rose is a reminder of how complex, yet delicate life can be. Each experience is a part of how you have evolved into the person you are today. To often we emphasize or highlight the people or events that either diminish or exaggerate certain parts of our journey. We label them as good or bad, or perhaps replay them over and over until they have taken on a disproportionate weight in our evaluation of our success or happiness. Desert Rose Barite can assist you in looking at who you are today and finding the inner beauty of all the interconnected aspects that make you who you are today.
