Selenite is a crystallized form of gypsum that’s mostly commonly found in the form of a translucent, multifaceted stone. It’s formed when sulfate and calcium-rich saltwater evaporates, and it has a hardness of 2 on the Mohs scale.
Many people believe selenite is a powerful healer with multiple benefits, though there’s no scientific evidence to support this.
However, there is evidence that selenium — which is selenite’s trace element form — has multiple health benefits. A trace element is a chemical element found in a very small amount in living things.
Here are a some of the main purported healing benefits of a selenite crystal:
- promotes peace and calm
- provides clarity
- clears blocked energy
- elevates the spirit
- helps you access your intuition
- is an effective space cleanser
- vibrates at a very high frequency
- promotes connection and camaraderie
- enhances powers of manifestation
