Selenite and Cannabis 101

Selenite is an elegant and gentle stone. Beautiful and translucent, this crystal evokes healing and protection and like a moth, you may find yourself attracted to or even mesmerized by the way light delicately radiates out from this crystal. It is actually a variety of gypsum, meaning it is a soft sulfate mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate, making it one of the softest crystals in existence. The word ‘selenite’ is derived from the Greek goddess Selene, the goddess of the moon, which is understandable as when you observe its gleaming white colour and milky translucence.
