Selenite gemstones are transparent gypsum crystals known for their beautiful shapes and spiritual cleansing abilities.
These crystals are usually colorless, white, or gray.

Selenite Specifications & Characteristics

Selenite’s chemical formula is CaSO4·2H2O, meaning it’s a hydrous calcium sulfate.
On the Mohs mineral hardness scale, selenite gypsum ranks at a very low 2.
Outside of gemstones, selenite mineral uses come in handy for plaster, cement, and fertilizer.

selenite density is around 2.3, while calcite density is 2.71.

Almost all selenites are transparent, and they only appear translucent to opaque from inclusions,
element impurities, and natural sand coatings.
