This may sound silly, but I have a Selenite free form crystal that I bought from you that has become scratched. I actually bought quite a few of these free form selenite crystals but this one is my favorite and because I carry it around so often and because Selenite is so soft, it is showing a lot of wear. Now for the silly part - can it be polished? Can I do anything to get rid of the surface scratches myself and if I cannot do anything myself, is this something a jeweler can do? Thank you for your help,
Thanks so much for your question about how to clean up the scratches on your Selenite.
Since Selenite is such a soft crystal you don't want to use any chemicals, tools or even water on the crystal. I believe that if you had someone try to polish the scratches that it would only further damage your Selenite. You could wrap it in a soft cloth and take care to keep it from other, harder crystals to avoid any further scratches.
Something to consider is that the scratches didn't happen by accident. Personally, I believe that scratches, cracks, imperfections and even breaks happen for a reason and are one of the ways that crystals become more personal to us. I'm assuming that this Selenite is still your favorite and you still use is just as frequently. Does its energy feel any different? Maybe it is all of the energy that it is sending to help you that is showing as visible scratches. I think that those scratches can make your Selenite even more powerful and more special for you.
