Historical Origins

Selenite's historical origins trace back to ancient times when it was discovered and admired by civilizations such as the Ancient Greeks and Egyptians. The Greeks associated Selenite with lunar energy and named it after the moon goddess, Selene, calling it "stone of the moon." Later, in 1747, J.G. Wallerius, in his book "Mineralogia, eller Mineralriket," gave it the name "selenites," derived from the Greek word 'σεληνη' (the moon), likely inspired by its pale bluish reflections.

Crystal Insights with Katie

Selenite holds a deeply meaningful place in my journey as it convinced me of the healing benefits of crystals through a powerful ritual called energetic cord cutting. This profound realization inspired me to establish Crystal Logic Shop, where I could share this knowledge of crystal healing with others and dispel stigmas surrounding it. Energetic cord cutting is a practice that uses crystal to release energetic ties that no longer serve us. Selenite is an ideal choice for this practice due to its high vibrational energy and innate cleansing properties. Guided by a friend during my initial experience, I closed my eyes and envisioned thick luminous cords radiating from my energy centers. Using the Selenite wand, she symbolically cut these cords without physical contact. As I went through the process, I felt a surge of emotions, and though it was intense, it brought a newfound sense of lightness and emotional liberation. This therapeutic practice has allowed me to establish healthy boundaries, especially in complex relationships, offering me the freedom to nurture my well-being. As time goes on, cord cutting becomes less intense, but its positive impact endures. If you're intrigued or have questions, reach out to me -- I'm here to listen, to connect, and share more.
