Selenite Crystals & Their Healing Properties

Selenite Crystals & Their Healing Properties

I absolutely love Selenite crystals. It’s a form of gypsum crystal that I refer to as liquid light.  Interestingly, gypsum occurs on every continent in the world, and is the most common of all the sulfate minerals. Selenite crystals are white in color, and have many healing and mystical properties. It is named after the Greek goddess of the moon, Selene. It has only a 2 on the Mohs hardness scale, and is tubular in shape, with striations running along its length. This soft, but powerful, mineral is extremely important to work with, as the selenite healing properties are greatly beneficial for everyone. It helps to stabilize and balance the emotional body.

There are many different ways you can use Selenite crystals. A simple energy shifting technique you can do at work, or in your home, is to sit in a chair while placing your bare feet on a selenite wand or stone. As you sit quietly, breathe and feel the energy of the Earth under you feet. Allow yourself to relax and let go. Within 15 minutes, clarity and balance will be restored within your body.

To cleanse your aura, take a selenite wand and use it like it’s an eraser. Comb the crystal up and down your body, visualizing it sucking all the negativity, anxiety and worries from your day away. Make sure you start at the top of your head, moving to the bottom of your feet, about 5 inches away from the body, and let the Selenite healing crystal energetically cleanse you. This simple technique is extremely powerful to do, in less than 5 minutes, if you are around large groups of people or find yourself around negative people or environments. This energy clearing technique helps to cleanse and purify your aura, making sure that you don’t pick up on other peoples’ energy and unwanted “stuff”.

A woman, who space clears ghosts and entities from environments, told me that she always places selenite crystals on the windowsills and in the corners of rooms that she has cleared. She believes that ghosts and entities do not like to occupy spaces where Selenite resides. I am passing on the information that she shared with me—as always make your own opinion. However, I have personally selenite crystals in all the rooms of my home, as well as under my bed, and notice that I sleep like a baby. For space and energy clearing, you can also burn white candles in a selenite candle holder. This is a simple, and beautiful, way to keep the energy clear and cleansed while there are many people in your home.

Naica Crystal Cave filled with Selenite Crystals

Selenite crystals help to remove all energy blockages in the body. Place a selenite wand on any area of the body that feels sore or tight, for about 20 minutes, and you will feel the difference. Selenite is also excellent for clearing and purifying jewelry and environments. I often place my crystal healing jewelry on a Selenite charging plate over night, and in the morning, it feels light and clean. The selenite healing properties hold the energy of the light and it feels good. When I hold Selenite wand or stone, I know I am holding a piece of Mother Nature’s most magnificent creation. One of the most beautiful displays of Selenite appears in the Naica Cave, in Mexico. The largest one weighs around 55 tons and estimated to be 50,000 years old.

The energy of the Earth is healing, transformative and in a constant state of evolution—just like we are. I remember a wise Mayan healer told me that for every ailment on Earth, the remedy for it could be found within Nature.

Healer heal thyself.

    I am new to using Selenite in any form and do find them very fascinating. As a sensitive, the energy stored in the crystal is amazing. I have used “polished stones” then I bought some 7 inch wands. I got a big surprise when I found out the wands I bought will “sliver” like wood does and the slivers can be so small the tweezer tip looks huge under magnification. It wood be nice to mention this when talking about wands and if you have any advice on how to handle these properly it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.- Robert

      You are not alone! That happens to us too with the raw pieces of selenite. We have been told that using a little bit of water and a brush (like a shoe shining brush?) helps. If you try and lightly and gently polish down the rough, flaky edges, as the water will help to “dissolve” the little parts. Hope this helps!

    Selenite came into my life at the perfect moment. after erasing my aura of unwanted energy i had the best sleep i’ve had in a while without ingesting sleep inducers. i woke up perfectly refreshed and ready for the day! i cant wait to practice some more with my wand. hoping it will greatly assist with anchoring light in the crystal grids.

    Hi, thanks for your site. I have a couple questions. What is the best way to cleanse selenite? Will it remove negative energy from other crystals? Thanks

    • Reply March 31, 2017


      Hi there! We recommend placing Selenite in the sun or the full moon for at least 4 hours–it loves that! And yes, you can place your other crystals and tumbled stones with it to cleanse their energy.

    • Reply May 3, 2017


      Selenite is one of the crystals that doesn’t have to be cleansed! We still like to place it out in the sun from time to time to let it recharge 🙂 And yes, with all your crystals, you always want to program it and give it a job!

        As a LightworkerI think we share our intent and purpose with the crystal we are asking for thier help in our healing.As far as programing them and giving them a job ,I believe crystals already know what to do by design by the divine and sacred geometry its up to us to use our intuitive self and connection to the energy and vibration of the crystal.recharging in sun and moon and bury in earth is a wonderful gift we give crystals for thieramazing ability for transforming our lives.

          And we totally respect that and love what you said about them! Everyone uses crystals differently in their work, and it is our personal belief that everyone should harness their energy in a way that fits best with their practice. Thank you for sharing Lorraine!

    I recently bought a wand and as l was passing it over my body l heard a cracking sound and wondered what, if anything, is happening. It does look as though it has tiny cracks inside, which l didn’t see earlier, but it’s still beautiful.

    Thank you

    How do you cleanse the selenite?

    • Reply December 5, 2017


      We like to lay ours under the sun or the full moon every so often! however, it doesn’t have to be cleansed as often as other crystals.

      Selenite is self-cleansing and you can use it to cleanse your other gemstones too!

    Is there a way to stabilize selenite? I want to wear it as a pendant without it breaking or flaking.

    • Reply January 8, 2018


      If you slightly “water polish” Selenite – to make it smoother – we have an Energy Clearing necklace made with Selenite that has been salt/sugar cured and polished slightly with water so that it does not flake off. But Selenite is brittle in nature, so you always have to be a little careful with it.
