What is Selenite?
Selenite is a form of gypsum and the name comes from the ancient Greek word for the moon. It has a Mohs hardness of 2 and will disintegrate in water and can scratch easily, making it useless for jewelry making. It is formed from ancient sea salt water that has evaporated. 5000 years ago it was used as a building plaster and it was used by Egyptians in building pyramids. It is used in crop fields to aerate soil, plaster casts in the medical and dental industry, and as a polishing compound for plate glass windows. It is also used to promote yeast fermentation in beer making. Where ever you see stucco or mortar, there’s probably selenite present. It is commonly found in the US, Mexico, Russia, Austria, Greece, Germany, Poland, France, and England.
