Selenite's strong ability to cleanse makes it an excellent stone for removing the effects of environmental pollution from water, air, clothes, and food. It is known primarily as a mental cleanser in all forms: thoughts, feelings, and reality-based patterns that create barriers to creativity and true expression in one's life experience.
Selenite derives its name from the Moon Goddess Selene because of its beautiful crystalline glow which is often moonlight white or pale grey in color. This "Moon Goddess Crystal" is most powerful at night, but has the beneficial energies to provide strength during the day also.
Selenite crystal provides clarity of mind, alleviates fears and insecurities, opens one up to communication from the higher planes, and facilitates information retention. It is helpful for those who have trouble studying or learning as it enhances mental perception, focus, and concentration.
