Selenite is the crystalline version of gypsum, which is readily cleaved into natural wands or sheets. It is a very soft stone which can be scratched easily with a fingernail. The name selenite comes from the Greek word Selene, meaning moon. Selenite is a stone of mental clarity, honesty, intuition, and spiritual communication. It can be used to dispel negativity, remove energy blocks, and aid in meditation and spiritual development. It also greatly enhances the properties of other stones and helps to clear and charge them.
