Most people are familiar with the use of crystals in jewellery, such as necklaces, pendants, and rings, but did you know that using larger crystals as home accessories can contribute to an overall sense of well-being and harmony? Not only do crystals make really stunning decorative features, they can also enhance your environment and even clean your space and lift the energies of a room, thereby contributing to a more healthy home.
One such stone that is becoming increasingly popular is Selenite. Selenite has a very fine vibration and a kind of ethereal quality. It is said to be excellent for meditation and spiritual work. It can help to bring clarity of mind, introducing a calming and gentle feel to a room. In the current times we live in life seems to be more hectic than ever and after a busy day at work it is often hard to relax and wind down. A large piece of Selenite placed in a room brings a peaceful atmosphere, creating a quiet space for some quality downtime. It is also great in children’s rooms and soothes the atmosphere when tempers are high and helps to settle and solve disagreements.
Translucent Selenite is the most commonly used form of this stone and it can be found in a range of shapes: pillars, spars, polished palm stones and eggs, blocks, wands and hearts and even lamps and tea light holders. Not only is it attractive, Selenite also acts as a disperser of energy and works in a supportive capacity offering protection from electro-magnetic smog when placed close to sources of radiation , such as wifi, laptops and computers, TVs and other devices. It helps to create a safe space, protecting from outside influences and is one of the most powerful crystals for the new vibration on Earth.
Small pieces can be purchased for as little as £2 as it is easily obtained and found in a number of countries, including the US, Mexico, Russia, Austria, Greece, Poland, Germany, France and even England, though I have not been fortunate to find any myself.
One thing to note: Selenite needs to be kept away from damp environments such as bathrooms or kitchens as steam and moisture generally can cause it to dissolve or flake. It is more accurately a chemical sedimentary mineral than a stone, and is only a 2 on the Mohs scale of hardness. If dropped on a hard surface, such as a tiled or stone floor it will likely shatter. Since it is readily available though, it is not difficult to replace in the event of a mishap.
