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. It is often associated with other minerals, such as halite and sulfur. It is deposited from lakes, seawater, hot springs, volcanic vapors, and sulfate solutions in geological veins. Hydrothermal anhydrite in veins is commonly hydrated to gypsum by groundwater in near-surface areas.

The largest known deposits of gypsum occur in strata from the Permian age. 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). It is interesting to note that if the natural conditions become extremely dry and the Gypsum becomes overly dehydrated, it transforms into the mineral known as Anhydrite. If water is then reintroduced, it is restored back into Gypsum.

HEALING PROPERTIES

A protective stone, Selenite shields a person or space from outside influences. Selenite can evoke protection from the angelic realm and also dispels negative energy. The powerful energies of Selenite help one connect with one's guides, guardians, Christ Consciousness and Higher Self. Selenite can be held or placed around a person to facilitate such a connection.

Selenite calms and soothes, bringing a deep peace and sense of tranquility. Use Selenite in a grid around your home or in the corners of a room to create a safe and peaceful space. Meditating with Selenite aids in access to past and future lives. Selenite brings mental clarity, clearing confusion and revealing the bigger picture behind any problem. Selenite is a crystallized form of Gypsum, which is used for good luck and protection. The powerful vibration of Selenite can clear, open, and activate the Crown and Higher Chakras and is excellent for all types of spiritual work. Selenite can also be used to strengthen the memory.

Physically, Selenite removes energy blockages from physical and Etheric bodies. It can reverse the effects of free radicals to heal and repair on the cellular level.
