Selenite comes in two forms: as a clear crystal with both
clarity and a lovely shimmery quality, and in a form called
The clear selenites, like all clear crystals -- Quartz,
Calcite, Fluorite, and Danburite -- have the quality of
activating the seventh (crown) chakra.
The seventh chakra is our direct connection to spirit. When
it is balanced, we understand our relationship with the
universe. We feel our connection with other humans and other
forms of life.
Clear Selenite's particular contribution towards furthering
this connection is its ability to allow us to consciously
understand our own deepest inner truth, that part of ourselves
which is not body, not emotions or thoughts, but pure spirit.
In this sense, it helps us to be in touch with our purpose
for being in physical existence.
Because of its ability to help us filter out ego-based messages
and thoughts it is an excellent crystal for meditation when
placed on the crown (top of the head). It can also help
to clear up mental confusion.
Selenite rosettes are named for their resemblance to roses.
Each rosette appears to have many petals. They are usually
tan or beige in colour, and are opaque.
Spiritually, the rose represents pure love, which is the
highest vibration. I think of Selenite rosettes as grounding
It is significant that selenite in both its forms relates
to purity. There is also a deeper connection. Love is the
medium which enables us to experience our connection to
all of life, and you will find that working with both forms
of selenite can deepen this experience.
