Selenite crystals are master cleansers. Selenite has the ability to hoover away vibes and energy that aren’t aligned with your own.

That makes selenite one of my favorite ways to cleanse crystals and jewelry after a long day. I simply prop my jewelry up on a Selenite crystal or two for a while.

What is selenite crystal?

Selenite is a hydrous calcium sulfate mineral with a Mohs harness of 2 (so it’s really, really soft…you can scratch it with a strong fingernail). It forms in clay beds and around hot springs.

It also dissolves over time when exposed to water, so be careful not to get it wet.

If you haven’t seen it, take a look at the Niaca Cave of Crystals. It has some of the largest selenite crystals ever discovered.

How to use selenite crystals

Selenite is a master cleanser and can knock bad juju off of just about anything.

It’s a great ally, with energy that clears etheric blockages, debris, and stagnation, and helps restore balance.

Use it to clear other crystals, jewelry, stagnant rooms, and the chakras and meridians in you body.

You can find it in natural tower form (like the ones I have my bracelets on in the picture above).

You can also find selenite in long natural logs, or cut and polished into charging plates, bowls, or long wands.

Quick exercise to feel selenite crystal energy

Selenite has also one of the most easily felt energies of all crystals.

Have a piece of selenite? Try this quick exercise.

Hold a piece of selenite up to your third eye, in the center of your forehead between your eyes. Close your eyes. Many people report a sensation like a wind blowing through them, followed by a feeling of lightness.
