Beautiful, shimmering selenite is enhanced with a delicate carving of a lotus flower. Measures approx. 50-60 mm
Selenite palm stones (pocket stones, touch stones, worry stones) fit nicely into the palm of the hand. These tactile stones are beautiful to display and admire but are small enough to place under a pillow or tuck into a bag or pocket. They can be chosen to hold during meditation or to place on a body part for healing and massage.
Selenite is named after the Greek word for moon, contrary to popular belief, it contains no significant selenium. Selenite is a form of fibrous and crystallized gypsum, of which there are three other varieties; satin spar, desert rose and gypsum flower. These four varieties are sometimes grouped together under the name selenite.
As a healing stone, its soft light is sought after to provide clarity of mind and expanded awareness of the higher self. An incredible property of selenite is that it does not need to be cleansed as it continuously clears and recycles energy. It is said to help regenerate the cellular structure and has been used to correct skeletal disorders and to promote flexibility.
The lotus symbol represents an array of concepts, depending on the school of thought. In Buddhism it is symbolic of purity of the body, speech and mind. Buddhists see this flower that floats above the muddy waters of attachment and desire to be symbolic of detachment. In Hinduism the lotus represents beauty, creation and awakening. These simple concepts stem from a complex history. In Egyptology, the lotus represents the sun. In Western culture the lotus has become a popular symbol of meditation and spiritual growth that may include many of these historical concepts.
