Selenite is a crystalline form of a mineral that is composed of calcium sulfate. It is commonly found in sedimentary environments and is often associated with evaporite deposits. Selenite crystals typically have a translucent or opaque appearance and can exhibit a variety of shapes, including tabular, prismatic, and needle-like forms.
One notable characteristic of selenite is its softness, as it can be easily scratched with a fingernail. The crystal is also known for its unique property of exhibiting a phenomenon called "selenite satin spar," where fibrous or needle-like inclusions create a silky, pearly luster on the surface of the crystal.
In metaphysical and spiritual practices, selenite is believed to possess certain properties that are said to enhance mental clarity, promote a sense of peace and tranquility, and facilitate spiritual growth. Some people use selenite for meditation and energy cleansing rituals, as it is thought to have the ability to clear negative energies from its surroundings.
