Selenite Gemstone Properties


Selenite General Gemstone Details

ˈse-lə-ˌnīt

SeleniteSharp Sword of Awareness

Selenite, also known as Satin Spar and Desert Rose is a clear variety of gypsum, selenite crystals often form as seawater evaporates. As they become heavier, these crystals sink to the bottom of the sea bed. Strangely enough Selenite can be permanently damage if exposed to water, so do not cleanse or immerse it in water for any reason.

Although the name Selenite means ‘moonstone’ it has no connection with the other more beautiful and durable Moonstone gemstones. The silvery quality of the stone may have reminded those who name it of the moon, and in turn the Greek moon goddess Selene.

Selenite Scientific Properties


Selenite
Mohs Hardness of 2 with a monoclinic crystal structure

Selenite is a colorless form of gypsum. Selenite, satin spar, desert rose, and gypsum flower are four varieties of the same mineral gypsum; all four varieties show obvious crystalline structure.

The four “crystalline” varieties of gypsum are sometimes grouped together and called Selenite. Also, because gypsum has natural thermal insulating properties, all varieties feel warm to the touch.
