This week’s MotD theme: Mineral Orbs
From Lost Cities Beads in San Diego comes this beautiful collection of selenite spheres with a “cat’s eye” effect. It was part of their blog post from 2011. To see them as large spheres is amazing, usually I see them as wands or in chunks. With them round like this, I just want to play with them ALL!
From Geology.com about Selenite (gypsum):
Gypsum is an evaporite mineral most commonly found in layered sedimentary deposits in association with halite, anhydrite, sulfur, calcite, and dolomite. Gypsum (CaSO4.2H2O) is very similar to Anhydrite (CaSO4). The chemical difference is that gypsum contains two waters and anhydrite is without water. Gypsum is the most common sulfate mineral.
From Healing Crystals For You about the metaphysical properties of selenite:
Selenite crystals work to help you to bring light down from the higher realms into the physical body, to create personal transformation.
The white or transparent crystals have a strong vibration that may open the crown chakra and the soul star chakra.
This will assist you to contact the Divine Mind and to access the Angelic realm.
These are high vibration crystals, that also deliver clarity of mind, by cleansing the aura of negative energy build up, both within the physical and the etheric body.
Using White Selenite can be powerful for activating dormant abilities from past lives. It has the capacity to take you to the higher realms, which often happens quickly.
