Satin Spar Selenite

Everything you need to know about Satin Spar Selenite.

IDENTIFICATION

Satin Spar Selenite is a crystal habit of the mineral gypsum. All varieties of gypsum are composed of Calcium Sulphate Dihydrate (meaning that it has two molecules of water), with the chemical formula CaSO4·2H2O.

Its lustre is vitreous, translucent to opaque and are milky or pearly white in colour. Polished Satin Spar displays chatoyancy (cat's eye effect) and it is measured as having a hardness of 2-3 on the Mohs scale, so can be fragile.

Satin Spar Selenite originates from India, Madagascar, Morocco, Greece, USA, and Mexico. The highest quality and most powerful comes from Mexico.  

Satin Spar Selenite is a soft crystal, but it can look similar to glass. Real selenite can be easily scratched, whereas a fake (likely made of glass) cannot. Take your fingernail or a sharp object and see how easily you can scratch it. If it's soft and easy to scratch, it's probably real.

Satin Spar Selenite best combines with:

  • Black Tourmaline: Combined together you will be creating a powerful ‘force field’ of protection. It is excellent for removing any negative energy from you, and purging that which you do not wish to experience.
  • Celestite: The combination of these two stones is highly beneficial, as they both greatly enhance each other resulting in amplified visualisation abilities. It also strengthens its ability to raise vibration even further and remove negativity from your life. 

  • Hematite: These 2 work well together by amplifying its protective properties even further and creating a very strong bubble of protection around you.

  • Kyanite: Kyanite’s protective energy is stronger when used in conjunction with Satin Spar Selenite as they both amplify each other! They offer an especially strong shield to deflect the negative effects of EMFs (electromagnetic fields).

HISTORY 

The word selenite comes from the Greek word selēnitēs lithos, which translates as “moonstone” ; selēnē which means “moon” and lithos which means “stone.” In Greek mythology, Selene is the goddess of the moon.

SPIRITUAL ATTRIBUTES

Satin Spar Selenite may be one of the most important tools in any spiritual practice. It is used by channelers to enhance the connection to the spirit realms.

It is also used by Reiki practitioners to cleanse and balance the body, while amplifying the energies of the other crystals used in the practice. Energy workers use selenite for cord cutting ceremonies to help break energetic attachments that no longer serve us. When used in meditation it can also help in accessing past and future lives.

By working to open the Crown Chakra, Satin Spar Selenite helps a person access angelic guidance from guardians, and the higher self. 

PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES

Satin Spar Selenite is called the lucky stone, bringing good fortune to the bearer.

Satin Spar Selenite removes energetic blockages from the physical and etheric body allowing bodily fluid and energies to circulate more freely. This helps in aiding the body to heal on a cellular level. Satin Spar Selenite resembles the body's skeletal structure, making it a good stone to aid in spinal injuries, promoting overall flexibility, and correcting the spinal column. By working on a cellular level, Satin Spar Selenite can aid in clearing out heavy metals from the system and reverse the effects of free radicals that age our cells. 

Satin Spar Selenite has been used to aid fertility, strengthen bones and restore supplements to the skin. It also supports when life seems to be too hectic, yet boosts personal growth during times of stagnation.

EMOTIONAL ATTRIBUTES

Sweeter than honey and milk, Satin Spar Selenite gets to work straight away with helping you to shed those anxieties and worries that can weigh down the heart. This is a crystal that loves to be light, that wants to grow wings, and doesn’t desire any kind of anchor or ties from catastrophic thinking. To help free you from these tangled thoughts, Satin Spar Selenite first starts with helping you to unburden yourself by thinking with crystal-clear clarity. It helps you to become beautifully aware of your surroundings and lends impeccable judgement and healthy insight so that you can work carefully with your soul to make the right decisions. It’s a stone that invites you to be open and honest, pure, and liberated, and to bring forgiveness to situations that are no longer serving you. Satin Spar Selenite helps you to do that emotional work of letting go so that you are able to rise up in your fullest form of power.
