ENTER: Selenite crystals
This crystal is a definite favourite among crystal lovers and crystal newbies alike, thanks to its cleansing, recharging properties.
Physical Description of Selenite
The name ‘selenite’ is derived from Selene, the Greek goddess of the moon. And one look at a white selenite crystal will make you understand why it has ties with this goddess – selenite is angelic.
While selenite’s most common form is an iridescent white colour, its other most common colourings are orange and ‘desert rose’.
The orange colour is caused by the presence of hematite (an iron-oxide) within the selenite, which creates a pearly orange or peachy hue.
Desert Rose Selenite
Desert rose selenite, also known as sand rose or gypsum rose, is a fascinating stone to look at. It is formed over hundreds of years by Mother Nature, with water, wind and sand all playing a part to create the unique rosette look of these crystals.
