Selenite is an alternate name for the mineral gypsum. The word Selenite comes from the Greek “selenites”, meaning “moon stone” or “moon rock”. Selenite is a natural insulator and will appear much warmer to the touch than other crystals. It is a very soft stone, and may come in several different crystal formations. Included are selenites called desert roses, these are flower resembling selenites that have tiny blade-like crystals, sometimes coming in browns, greens, beige, grey, or white. Fibrous selenite, also called satin spar, has a chatoyant flash to it, it may be found in crystal formations several meters long. This satin spar selenite is sometimes made into unusual decorator pieces. Clear selenite crystals may occur in smaller sizes.
Selenite is used to make drywall, concrete, and plaster of Paris and also in the production of tofu as well as the production of mead and home brew. It is also used as an ingredient in Chinese medicine and more recently in foot creams, shampoos, and other hair products.
