Selenite is a form of gypsum, a common mineral composed of calcium sulfate. Gypsum normally is found in sedimentary rock formations, where it forms deposits that can be up to 30 feet thick. The name "gypsum" comes from the Greek word "bypsos" meaning plaster. Gypsum is used today to make plaster and cement.
Selenite is the colorless to white colored, translucent variety of gypsum. The name selenite comes from the Greek word "selenites" meaning "moon stone". Selenite exhibits a characteristic brilliant watery reflection on its surface as light changes or one's point of view shifts. This is known to gemologists as "chatoyancy".
Coined from the French "chat oeil," meaning "cat's eye," chatoyancy occurs when light is reflected from bands of fibrous inclusions or cavities within the stone, as in cat's eye chrysoberyl. or selenite.
"The effect can be likened to the sheen off a spool of silk; the mobile, wavering reflection always being perpendicular to the direction of the fibres," according to the Wikipedia.
Crystal healers say that selenite radiates a vibration of mental clarity, and can be excellent doorways to higher realms, so they can be a point of contact with spiritual guides and teachers, both those in physical bodies at this time and those whose energies are primarily elsewhere.

Selenite has been used as a tool to enable lightworkers to "see" inside the physical body to determine where energy imbalances and unhealthy conditions predominate. Selenite has also been used to adjust the energy in the spinal column. Moving the selenite up the spinal column removes energy blockages, and moving the selenite down the spinal column smooths out energy flow.
