Peach Selenite (Satin Spar) ranges in color from light peach to deep orange and is often called Orange or Red Selenite. A form of gypsum, Selenite is a soft mineral. Its thin layers create a moon-like luminescence. It is named after the ancient Greek Moon goddess, Selēnē.
Peach Selenite has been known to be an extraordinary healer and a transformation stone. It can help us heal old emotional wounds; and is believed to transform negative energy to love, forgiveness, and acceptance. Peach Selenite can be used to increase self-awareness, self-esteem, and willpower. It could also be beneficial when traveling a new path.

Sleeping with or near Selenite can induce lucid dreaming; it can help you recall your dreams more easily, and understand the messages that they are bringing to you.
Selenite is a calming and soothing crystal. It instills a deep sense of inner peace. Selenite is said to be a “bringer of light”, the “stone of mental clarity”, enhancing awareness and strengthening the ability to make good decisions. It can be used to meditate on one’s life purpose, and as a tool in accessing past and future lives.
Selenite heightens spiritual insight and creativity. It helps to open the crown and higher chakras, which can result in deepening spiritual connections from guides, angels, the Creator and your own Higher Self. It creates a clear channel to the soul and to the highest levels of self.
On a physical level, Selenite can help to relieve tension from the body. It is especially useful for skin issues such as: wrinkles, age spots, acne, itchy dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, shingles and pressure sores. It assists in maintaining skin elasticity and a youthful appearance. It’s also beneficial to the skeletal, muscular and cellular structure. Although, its finest healing takes place at the energetic level.
Selenite cleanses itself and it never needs to be cleared or charged. You can even cleanse or amplify other crystals by placing them on top of Selenite.
NOTE: Selenite is very fragile and dissolves when wet.
Wear around the neck or place between yourself and the source of electromagnetics (computer, cell phone, TV). Carrying a small piece in the pocket or sleeping with one in the pillowcase can provide cleansing for the auric field* and help clear confusion, as well as calm down heightened emotions.
Place Peach or White Selenite at each corner of the house or room to form a protective grid and remove negative energies. Selenite in the center of the home can create a calm, peaceful atmosphere.
Meditation with Peach Selenite can help you access past lives and enhance the communication with your Higher Self, spirit guides, and angels.
Put into a mister with water, let it sit overnight, and spray around the body for aura cleansing. Spray around the head to bring mental clarity and focus.
*AURA/AURIC FIELD: The subtle biomagnetic sheath that surrounds the physical body, containing information about the person’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual state of being.
*CHAKRAS: Energy centers of the body. The term comes from the Sanskrit word chakram, which means ‘wheel’.
*ETHERIC BODY: The first or lowest layer in the human energy field or aura. It is said to be in immediate contact with the physical body, to sustain it and connect it with the “higher” bodies.
