Orange Selenite is a variety of Selenite and a member of the Gypsum family. It crystallizes in the form of masses, large tabular rods (with striations), and bladed clusters. The color is from impurities of Hematite within, with the darker orange pieces containing larger amounts of this iron-bearing stone. Larger quantities of this mineral are found in Mexico and as of recently Morocco. This has led to a massive reduction in value as well as an overflow on the market. Even though Selenite is extremely fragile, you can find this mineral cut and crafted in many different forms at your local gem shop or mineral show.
Orange Selenite and the energies it carries are nearly identical to normal Selenite, with the only difference being the heavy grounding effect Hematite offers. Normal white or clear Selenite is extremely powerful and offers potent energies capable of initiating a spiritual awakening. As Selenite would normally ascend your mind and consciousness, Orange Selenite grounds both your physical and spiritual body, while still engaging in the enlightenment of the soul. Don’t be afraid to carry this stone with you throughout the day, as no negative energies are capable of attaching to the pure heavenly light all forms of Selenite bear.
