Selenite is a type of crystallized gypsum which forms in a variety of shapes and sizes. It was first described in the early 18th century by a Swedish mineralogist, Axel Fredrik Cronstedt. Selenite is often found in abundance in sedimentary rock deposits, especially those of an evaporite origin. It is used as an ornamental stone due to its softness and ability to form into intricate shapes. The ancient Greeks and Romans used selenite in various forms to create jewelry and decorative pieces. It was also used by them for scrying, or crystal gazing, which is the practice of gazing into a crystal to gain insight and foresight. Selenite is a form of gypsum, which is composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate. It is named after the Greek goddess of the moon, Selene. Selenite has a hardness of 2 on the Mohs hardness scale, making it one of the softest minerals. It is often used in the construction industry as a building material due to its low cost and durability.

The ankh was an important symbol in Ancient Egypt, representing life and immortality. It was closely associated with the gods and goddesses of the day, particularly Osiris and Isis, and was often used in amulets, jewelry and other religious artifacts. It was believed to be a powerful symbol of protection, granting strength, health and long life.
