What Chakra is Selenite?

Of the seven chakras, selenite primarily activates your higher chakras. It helps you to stay rooted and grounded all while supporting the higher chakras to open and connect to the cosmos. Specifically, these are called the crown chakra and the third eye chakra. These are associated with mental clarity and divine inspiration. It also works with the third eye chakra for wisdom and intuition and the heart chakra for love and compassion.

How to Cleanse & Charge Selenite?

Clean and Charge under full moon light or in singing bowl.

Because selenite is used for clearing on its own, some people don't think it needs to be cleansed itself. Since selenite inevitably accumulates negative energy over time, you should cleanse it regularly to work properly and reap all the benefits of this crystal. You may choose to employ the balancing sounds of a singing bowl or a bell. The frequencies emitted by these sacred instruments of sound can effectively recharge any crystal. The light of the sun as well as the full moon or a bowl of dry salt will do an equally good job of cleansing and charging your crystals.  Moonlight is especially compatible with selenite because it has that connection with the moon, being named after the moon goddess Selene.


 How to spot Fake Selenite?

Real Selenite is a soft stone and can even be scratched by a fingernail. A fake will likely be made of glass while a genuine stone will scratch easily. You can also ensure it's a real piece of Selenite by looking for tiny impurities under the surface. Selenite should also be naturally warmer in the hand than quartz or glass.
