This is a very unusual form of selenite, currently only found in one area of South Australia. This is a natural formation, although the green coloration is said to be caused by copper run off from a nearby mine. Spring green needles form beautiful clusters, sometimes looking like bright patches of grass. These formations are highly delicate, so some shedding is to be expected. The little babies can be added to healing pouches or put around the base of potted plants.
Green selenite just feels good, and good to have around you. It has a bright energy which brings joy and lightness to the heart chakra. It fosters compassion and forgiveness and harmony within groups. We love its spring like energy.
These beautiful formations are from Mt. Gunson, Pernatty Lagoon, South Australia.
Selenite is a very soft mineral which is well known by its more common name of gypsum, a hydrated calcium sulfate. It is found in a wide array of formations and several colors including colorless or white, yellow, and orange. The parallel planes of white selenite that forms in blades is the most well known and most commonly used in energy work. Because it is soft, it is easy to carve into wands, spheres, and eggs that are silky smooth to the touch. Care should be used when handling selenite because it can be easily scratched.
Selenite is such a versatile mineral. It resonates with the pure energy of white light that is energizing and revitalizing. It raises the energy level of the environment around it. Use in a body layouts to help to blend energies and facilitate chakra flow. It helps to connect with our High Self, and to become aware of our own divinity. It brings mental clarity, expansion of awareness and strengthened judgment. Selenite removes blockages, promoting flexibility and flow. It also is excellent for clearing and charging other stones. I highly recommend using selenite to clear stones if you're not sure of their chemical composition since some clearing methods could seriously damage your stone.
