Named after Selene, the Greek goddess of the moon, this silky stone looks like it is made of moonlight. Also known as "Liquid Light", it is believed that selenite is the most pure of all stones and is often used to charge crystals, cleanse homes, and is commonly used in reiki practices. Selenite is also known as satin spar, desert rose, or gypsum flower.

Locality of selenite/satine spar: Morocco, Mexico, the USA, and many other parts of the world.
Please note that while selenite / satin spar can be used in jewelry, it is a very soft stone that can be easily damaged. It can also be worn down by sweat and water over time, though it does not dissolve immediately upon getting wet as many believe.
