Selenite is a lovely clear or white stone that often shows laminate layers or striations.

It is known for its pure, heavenly energy that helps you to connect to the angelic realm. It is a 7th (or “crown”) chakra stone. It helps to move in energy from the heavens (or ethers), and it also helps energy to “ground.” Likewise, when the 7th chakra is balanced, stagnation will be discharged.

This stone can help you connect to your own angels as well as the archangels.

Selenite was named after the Greek goddess of the moon, Selene. The clear white color of selenite reminds us of the moonlight. The energy of selenite is of a very fine, high frequency. It is intense, and yet it induces peace and peacefulness.

Selenite is the ideal stone for meditation.

The Pocket Book of Stones says that you can point a wand at your third eye and that you may feel a fresh breeze inside that goes from the forehead and out the top of the head.

People use the resin pyramid device, called “orgonite,” which is made with selenite stone to amplify the effects of selenite and to showcase the beauty of selenite. The quartz crystal on top amplifies the properties of selenite, the sacred geometry form of the pyramid also amplifies, and the metal bits in compressed resin form emit photons to further “light up” the “orgonite gem device.”

Selenite helps a person connect to their higher self. At the same time, the stone can help us connect to other dimensions. For example, selenite is said to be able to hold memories of things that occurred while in its presence or to help people connect, psychically. Selenite is also said to aid in past life travel–the striations helping to conduct that energy.

People use selenite bars to “cleanse” their altar items.

People place their stones and altar tools right on their selenite bar to discharge. (Selenite is one of the rare stones that does not itself accumulate energy.) Other stones can draw out or collect your negative energy, but then those stones need to be left in the sunlight or moonlight or rinsed in water to discharge. Otherwise, the accumulated energy, affecting their clear stone spirit.

Do not leave selenite laying on concrete or tile. The aggregate substance of concrete and tile “tires out” the selenite which is seeking to organize its environment, always. You can place the selenite on a little stand of some sort, when on a concrete surface, but not directly on the surface.

Selenite can be put in the four corners of a house or of a room to create a harmonious and clear environment.

Putting a large piece of selenite in the home is said to do the same. You can place at least six wands (oblong chunks) around you to create your own power vortex, according to Robert Simmons (of Heaven and Earth Jewelry). A small piece can be given as a gift to someone with whom you seek reconciliation. The purity and the striations can help the reconnection…cleansing ill feelings.

Physically, selenite is historically known to help the spine, the bones, the muscles, the nerves, and the sinews. It is a very structural stone. People have used selenite wands over the spine to clear the flow. Charms of Light says selenite has been “used to improve disorders associated with metal poisoning due to teeth fillings and can reverse the effects of “free radicals” in the cell structure.

Effects that can be overcome include cancer, tumors, age spots, wrinkles, and light sensitivity,” whereas emphasizes the mental aspect of selenite by saying: “Selenite enhances clarity of the mind and concentration, expanding one’s awareness of the self and of one’s surroundings and having a positive effect on the brain. It soothes the nerves and enhances willpower.”

More mainstream sources like are recommending that crystals be used as a “complimentary” health care tool…the implication is to use the best of what the crystal energy has to offer, but also using the best of what allopathic medicine has to offer, as well.
