Selenite is a soft stone, keep it dry, if it gets wet it will break down very easily. If for some reason you need a piece cut off the selenite crystal, it is best to let an experienced stone cutter do it. The reason for this is because the crystal is so soft that when the crystal is cut into, it tends to put off a soft powdery dust. This dust is toxic to the human body. When you handle it, immediately wash your hands because there are tiny Selenite fibers that can get into your lungs or eyes. If it gets in your lungs, it will cause internal bleeding and cause you to lose eyesight or cause a major eye infection. As long as you wash your hands, you will be fine.

The Labradorite crystal, I would have to say is my personal favorite. In this column, I am going to cover a lot of information that will be helpful. In the next several paragraphs you going to be mesmerized. Who knows some of you may read this and jump online and order yourself a nice size gorgeous Labradorite. So hold on tight, we’re going on a Rainbow Labradorite ride. The meaning of Labradorite is “Stone of Magick”.

Labradorite represents a wide variety of things for a single crystal. I was honestly surprised and impressed with it. The Labradorite is loved by diviners, healers, shawman, hidden realms, seen and unseen. Self-awareness into the spiritual world, intuition, psychic abilities, protection, auras, strengthening sights, prophecy, coincidence, clairvoyance, telepathy, healing, serendipity, respiratory issues, anxiety, stress, blood pressure, menstrual symptoms, spleen, stomach, adrenals, liver gallbladder, gout, and last but not least, rheumatism.

So as you can see in a short, there is a multitude of things the cherished Labradorite, is great for. Throughout history, dating back for thousands of years, Labradorite is loved and cherished by many, shawman, diviners, Psychics, and so on. Many have relied a lot on the beautiful crystal. this crystal also assisted the telepathic, third eyes, and psychics to see and also visit the spiritual realms, sometimes even tell prophies.

Many healers, such as the shawman- (Indian medicine man) use this stone to help relieve pain associated with menstrual cycles, gout, Gaul bladder issues, pain with the spleen, stomach aches, and rheumatoid arthritis. Sometimes the individuals that have high blood pressure keep this wonderful stone nearby to help with the pain that comes with the heart hurting from blood pressure going sky high and to alleviate the headaches that come with that.

Anxiety and stress, well theirs a lot to be said for these two that go hand in hand. Stress goes up, anxiety is sure to follow and does not stay far behind. Anxiety kicks in and it gets hard to breathe, the heart starts racing and your breathing becomes labored. When this starts happening, I light some white sage and place the Labradorite between my collar bone and my curated artery, after a few minutes, everything starts to settle down. Great to have. This may not work for all, everyone’s crystals have their unique bond with their owner.
