Selenite gets its name from Selene, the moon goddess, and is associated with angel magic, enlightenment, emotion, and inspiration and creativity. It is a stone of truth and honesty, and can be used to help with decision making and with opening your mind to new opinions and ideas. Because selenite is a type of gypsum, it is easily scratched or damaged. Use care when working with it. Don’t use salt or water for cleansing because either one will ruin the stone.

Include selenite in a spell to attract someone who is enlightened and spiritually aware.
