Selenite has been a top favourite for many crystal lovers dating back to the Ancient Greeks who named the translucent crystal Selenite which means “moon” in Greek. They even constructed windows out of Selenite to allow light into darker rooms.


Selenite is commonly found in the deep caves of Mexico, Morocco and Madagascar and the raw crystal formations can be as long as 35 feet.

Selenite is a popular crystal when it comes to cleansing and clearing the home or office space. It dispels negative energy and enhances clarity, focus and creates calm in any space.


It is said that Selenite opens channels into other worlds. It enhances team spirit in groups and organisations so it’s a great crystal to have in your work environment.


Selenite lamps are a fantastic alternative to the ever-popular salt lamps. They not only look amazing lit up to create ambience in your home or office space, but you do not need the light to be switched on to reap the benefits of this versatile crystal.

What is the difference between Himalayan Salt Lamps and Selenite Lamps?

Himalayan salt lamps are renowned for being naturally hygroscopic – meaning they attract and absorb water molecules from the surrounding air. This allows them to trap dust and other contaminants, acting as a natural air purifier. They are also known for their ability to generate negative ions. Being exposed to negative ions has a positive impact on our health and wellbeing, helping to boost our mood and improve our sleep.


Selenite lamps are renowned for their cleansing and healing abilities, and can help to clear negative energy from the surrounding environment. Selenite also has calming properties which makes it ideal for meditation or spiritual work. Selenite is self-cleansing and can heal and cleanse other crystals in its’ environment.


The great thing about Selenite and Salt Lamps is that they can co-exist in any environment harmoniously…so you don’t have to choose one or the other. You can have both!

What are the other forms of Selenite?

Another form of Selenite is a peachy brown crystal called Desert Rose. Desert Rose Selenite is a unique, natural crystal formation that is formed from the combination of water, wind and sand. It carries the energies of clarity, prosperity and purification. Desert Rose helps to rid the mind of old thought-processes, opening up the flow of guidance from your intuition.

Gypsum is the mother rock of Selenite. It is often clear/see through and can be a part of Selenite or come as stand-alone pieces.


As well as the popular white Selenite, it can also come in other colours like Salmon or Orange Selenite. It still has the same healing properties as white Selenite with the addition of encouraging a creative and productive atmosphere.
