What Chakra Is Selenite? (Explained)
Selenite is associated to the crown chakra for two reasons: its abilities as well as its color.
As you might know, each chakra represents a different part of ourselves and every crystal has different abilities to help in those areas. There are 7 chakras, which you’ll find below, from lowest to highest.
- The root chakra (Muladhara): our sense of stability and security.
- The sacral chakra (Svadihsthana): the emotional body, sensuality and creativity.
- The solar plexus (Manipura): self-esteem and your overall personal power.
- The heart chakra (Anahata): love, for ourselves and the world around us.
- The throat chakra (Vishuddha): communication, self-expression and trust.
- The third eye chakra (Ajna): our intuition, perception and overall awareness.
- The crown chakra (Sahasrara): the connection to the divine, transformation and clarity.
We commonly describe selenite as “liquid light”. It transforms everything it touches into positive, high vibrations. As we need to be in this high vibrational state of mind to connect with the spiritual world, selenite works wonders for the crown chakra. This chakra is the energy center located at the top of our head.
Selenite can help open up your crown chakra and is a great stone for anyone looking to heal their this part of their life. If you struggle to meditate or ‘see the bigger picture’, selenite can help you.
Apart from its abilities we can also look at the color. As every chakra has its own color, we can simply match a crystal to the chakra:
- The root chakra is red, but black stones are also a good match.
- The sacral chakra is orange.
- The solar plexus is yellow.
- The heart chakra is green, but also matches with pink stones.
- The throat chakra is blue.
- The third eye chakra is indigo.
- The crown chakra is violet, but also matches with stones that are clear or white.
As you can see, the white selenite matches perfectly with the crown chakra.

Selenite Benefits To The Crown Chakra
A blocked crown chakra can manifest in different ways.
A person with a blocked crown chakra might feel like they struggle seeing the bigger picture, or like they are stuck in old ways. You may also feel like you can’t really relate to other people; like everyone is living their own separate lives and there is no connection to yours.
Physical issues with the crown chakra manifest in the area of this energy center; the head. You might feel headaches, exhaustion or a lack of coordination.
As selenite connects perfectly to the crown chakra, it can help unblock and heal these issues. Please beware that crystals are never a replacement for medical help. Always go to a doctor if you experience serious issues. You can then work with your selenite to support treatment.

Where To Place Selenite On The Body?
Where you put your selenite completely depends on what you use it for. Below you’ll find some guidelines for both jewelry as well as meditation, depending on what you are looking for.
As a general rule, it is best to keep the stone on the skin closest to the chakra we associate it with. If you are meditating with the selenite and like to lie down, just place it top of the head. You can also keep it in your hand if you prefer.
Be careful about which hand you hold it in; there are two different opinions on this.
Some say the left hand is your receiving hand, whereas your right is your giving hand. Depending on what you are looking for from your crystal, you can place it on either of those sides. In this case, this left-in and right-out is just the flow of energy through the body which never changes.

Others however, believe that this flow of energy changes depending on if you’re left or right-handed. Your dominant hand (the hand that you write with) is your giving hand and releases energy. The non-dominant hand is the receiving hand.
It is best to place selenite in the receiving hand. However, if you can it is best to have a selenite in both hands. This way, it surrounds your entire being with light.
As you can see, there are some different views. Personally, I would recommend trying out both sides and see how you feel. Crystals are meant to be used intuitively, so use this to determine which side works for you.
If you prefer to wear selenite, it is preferred to wear it around your neck or as earrings, as selenite is connected to the highest chakra. Beware that selenite is very soft, and likely to chip, break, or dissolve in water. I personally choose to work with my selenite whilst meditating only, so I don’t risk breaking it.
