Worry stones are smooth, polished gemstones, used to soothe stress and relieve anxiety. They usually come in the shape of an oval with a thumb-sized indentation. While initially, normal rocks found in water bodies were used for the purpose, these days, worry stones are often being manufactured using semiprecious gemstones.

Selenite, the stone with angels vibrations is becoming increasingly rare. Our fantastic Selenite from Morocco products are a great beauty, and are estimated by many on their value. Yet our Selenite is not expensive, especially when compared to the quality. The name Selenite comes from Selene, the Greek goddess of the moon.

The name is given to larger translucent selenite gypsum crystals (CaSO4 · 2 H2O). Selenite is formed by oxidation of calcareous clay deposits, among other things. In these deposits is pyrite present. By weathering (oxidation) of pyrite, sulfate ions (SO42-) originate. Yet the oxidation of the clay will acidify, which will dissolve the lime (calcium dissolves in acidic environments). This will allow the Ca 2 + ions (calcium) to be released, which then will react with the sulfates to gypsum. Selenite is sometimes confused with Quartz (SiO2) because they are very similar in appearance. They are, however, easy to distinguish because the surface of Selenite can be scratched with your finger nail. With Rock Crystal this is not possible, because this mineral is much harder.

How to use
Hold the worry stone between the index finger and thumb, gently moving one's thumb back and forth across the stone. This action of moving one's thumb back and forth across the stone, stimulates the hand nerves that reduce stress. It is a natural aid for self-calming, the simplest form of natural medicine.
 

History
The use of worry stones has many origins. Its use has been reported in ancient Tibet, Greece, Ireland, and with many tribes in the Americas. Worry stones made by sea water were generally used by Ancient Greeks. Native American tribes would pass their worry stones on to younger generations, creating a sense of connection with their ancestors.
