Whether your Selenite crystal is shaped into bowls for easily cleansing other jewelry after a long day, shaped into a perfectly polished sphere or shaped as a classic raw stepped tower, its gentle energy will affect you in the same way. However each Selenite crystal is shaped affects how the energy is dispersed into your space. This is true of all crystals, and though Selenite is certainly incredible it is no exception to the roles of shapes. There is an incredible blog on our website Different Crystal Shapes: Their Energy, Meaning, And Uses For Everyday, which goes over just about every shape that a crystal can be. Despite this, I will offer a few excellent examples of classic Selenite shapes and where they’ll be most comfortable in your home.
The first and perhaps most quintessential shape of Selenite is a raw wand. This gypsum crystal flakes like hay, and when split creates very often perfect, long wand-like shapes that are further refined into well sized wands. These wands are more fragile than fully polished wands, however they are incredibly popular due to their low price and natural feel! I highly recommend using these wands to cleanse apartments or air-bnbs where smoke cleansing is highly frowned upon. Follow the ritual from the Selenite meaning page to cleanse any space in a jiffy, no flames required.
Raw Selenite crystal towers are also incredibly popular, and have the added benefit of radiating the cleansing energy of Selenite all throughout a room. Spilling from the top like a water fountain and filling the surrounding area with the gentle and misty white energy of Selenite, large or small these towers are just the thing to put in spaces with a lot of foot traffic. They’re a stunning visual statement, incredibly affordable, and have the added benefit of being able to sit on any table or shelf outside the reach of tiny fingers and toe beans. Place Selenite towers in living rooms accompanied by Clear Quartz and Sodalite, kitchens accompanied with Carnelian and Rose Quartz, dining rooms accompanied by Amethyst and Black Tourmaline. There is no end to the combinations and locations for Selenite towers! However they do prefer a dry environment so only take them into the bathroom to sit outside the tub during a long soak, we don’t recommend them as a restroom statement piece.
Selenite spheres have had a sudden surge of popularity, and we can’t blame you all! A soft crystal perfect for carving, Selenite can be cut and polished into most shapes if the structure takes into account its fragility. Selenite spheres display incredible chatoyance, and to boot the sphere is a shape which projects a crystal’s energy throughout the entire space! We highly recommend the sphere shape for spaces which consistently house a high amount of spiritual energy. This area may be around an altar space, or even by your bedside where you can be experiencing high vibrational dreams. A Selenite sphere will project an element of calm and healing that is vital for meditation, and also promotes an environment for not only peaceful but also potentially lucid dreams!
