Using Selenite with Other Crystals

A selenite plate or bowl is an ideal resting place for your other crystals when you are not using them. It has the unique property of clearing other crystals without needing to be cleared itself.

Selenite is often used in crystal grids and to make chakra wands, because it harmonizes and amplifies the energies of the other crystals, while keeping them clear of negative energy. To make a chakra wand, either glue or wrap a crystal for each chakra into place along a selenite wand.

Selenite and the Soul Star Chakra

Beyond the seven main chakras, we also have an Earth Star chakra below our feet and a Soul Star chakra about a foot above our heads. This chakra is the point of connection between our incarnated body and our Soul or Higher Self.  This is a transpersonal chakra, meaning it is exists beyond the physical, ego-based lifeform we generally think of as who we are.

If you have heard the phrase, “We are spiritual beings having a physical experience”, then you know that we are far more than just physical beings. The Soul Star chakra is the mediating point between the physical and non-physical parts of who we are. It helps in accessing the Akashic records, and becoming aware of the Divine order beyond your individual existence.

Meditating with Selenite, or using it above your head in a body layout can help you activate and consciously connect with your Higher Self through the Soul Star chakra.

Selenite Mineral & Gemstone Information

Selenite is a very soft mineral called gypsum. Because of its softness, it can crumble or break apart if handled too roughly. Fortunately, it is not very expensive. Selenite has striated (striped) appearance and a silky sheen. Selenite is usually translucent white, but it can be peach or other very light colors due to impurities. Never place selenite in water, as it will start to dissolve. Selenite jewelry is fragile and shouldn’t be exposed to the elements for long periods.
