A unique delicate crystaline selenite crystal adorns the end of this hair stick / shawl pin. It's finished with silver rolled accents. Also available in silver (last picture) and gold.
Due to it's delicate crystaline structure this hairstick top should be handled with care. We always recommend inserting hairstick using the metal base portion and not the top stone portions but this is especially true for this hair stick.
Selenite is a specific variety of the mineral gypsum named after the Ancient Greek goddess of the moon, Selene. The Greeks especially appreciated the beauty of selenite, even making windows with the stone. One unique use of selenite is in the Santa Sabina church in Rome: the large arched windows (built in the 5th century) are made of sheets of selenite, not glass.
Selenite is a calming stone that instills deep peace and is excellent for meditation or spiritual work. It is believed to assist judgement and insight.
