ORANGE SELENITE SPHERE (70-80mm)
These spheres are polished selenite with a smooth feel. Each sphere is unique with its own markings. A clear plastic will be included with your order with our compliments.
Most crystal spheres (such as quartz) are machine polished. These selenite spheres are hand polished. For most crystals that are quite hard and have a constant grain, machine polishing produces good results. However for selenite, which is a soft crystal, and also has grains that can change direction, machining spheres is just not possible to do consistently well.
This means that the selenite spheres we sell, will not, when examined very closely be 100% spherical mathematically speaking, although to the naked eye it is very hard to tell.
But you are getting the care and attention of a crafts person, and spheres that have a great polish.
More About Selenite
Selenite is a crystallised form of gypsum and comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, varying considerably in colour. It is a soft and very fragile crystal and is formed on Salt Plains, about two feet below the surface.
The energy of all colours and forms of selenite promote a feeling of spirituality and encourage connection with the divine. Selenite has a gentle and fine vibration is often associated with opening up the crown chakra and also accessing angelic consciousness. Larger pieces of selenite can be placed in your home to help bring peace and divine influences. Some people use selenite as a tool when accessing past life material or for use when meditating.
The clear form of the crystal, in particular, represents clarity, reminding us to aim to think clearly and without prejudice. Note: be careful if you cleanse selenite as, although some contact with water is okay, it's a soft mineral and could deteriorate if left in water for long periods of time.
