Selenite Crystal Lamps

Selenite Crystal Lamps and Selenite Healing Wands
Selenite is a naturally clear or opaque material formed from crystals of gypsum. Light passes through it easily, creating a warming glow. Therefore, a Selenite Lamp will make a welcome addition to your home, as well as creating a talking point for visitors. In addition, Selenite Crystals are believed to have healing properties, creating a calm and peaceful energy. Selenite Crystal Healing Wands are used to dissipate negative energy from the body. Crystals have been a source of healing, protection and magic to people for 1000's of years. Ancient people used precious stones and crystals as amulets to ward off evil spirits. Different races and religions around the world have reverred different types and colours of these naturally occuring elements.

Crystal Wands are used for healing. They are usually smooth, pointed at one end and blunt at the other to focus energy in a particular direction.

Selenite Wands, in particular, are used to promote wellbeing, peace, inner calm, tranquility, spirituallity and, therefore, to help with meditation. The name Selenite comes from the Greek word for Moon and it is a gypsum based crystal typically like the piece in the photo.

Selenite Crystal Lamp Styles

Selenite crystal lamps are available in a huge range of sizes, colours and styles. Usually left in a natural looking shape, each piece will have a unique shape and colour, formed by the natural growth of the crystal and therefore, creating a really unique lamp for the home. More formal, clear and polished versions are also available meaning there is a style to suit most tastes and interior decor.

The lamps are normally either free standing on a polished flat bottom cut into the crystal or come with a suitably style wooden or plastic base.
Using a Selenite Wand

Technique for Crystal Healing

Selenite Wands can be used in several ways for healing: The pointed end can be focussed on the Chakras of the body to promote the flow of energy in. The blunt end can be used to massage a particular area and at the same time focussing the negative energy away from the body. The wand is normally moved in small circles to massage the affected part of the body, for example the temples to help with a headache. The wand can also be waved or swept over the body to help clear negative energy. Further instruction can be seen in the video below.

Selenite is a gypsum based crystal and can be soft, brittle and water will break it down so care should be taken not to use too much water if you are cleaning the wand or piece of Selenite.

Other uses of Selenite Crystals.

As Selenite Crystals are used to promote peace and calm, small smooth pieces can be held during meditation. Or they can be placed around the corners of a room, in the home, to dissipate negative energy and again promote a tranquil space. It can also be carried with you for the same effects.
