"Hello there. I read the part of not placing the selenite near to heat source or light bulbs to avoid affecting the stone.
I happened to be doing some web browsing if selenite is sensitive to heat and both your article and another author's came up. The other author says selenite likes a great deal of sunlight so it's good to place it at a place where if can receive the source.
And we also know there are a lot of selenite towers are carved into candle holders and lamps with internal bulbs. However we all know majority of the crystals should not be placed in the sun for extended period of time as they will fade, especially citrine and amethyst.
I have kept a big slab piece of selenite in its box for sometime and just unboxed it. Fortunately it is still looking brilliant with good lustre. I have placed it at the window sill but after reading your article, am not quite sure if I should move it away from the sun.
Some clarifications will be greatly appreciated."
Thanks for reaching out to Healing Crystals!
To answer to your question, this is really a matter of personal preference and what you intend to use the crystal for. If you want the selenite as a display piece, you'll want it to maintain its appearance, and therefore, would want to avoid direct sunlight. But, if you are using it for a healing purpose or magical purpose, then you may not care if it loses some of its color and would want to keep it where it is most useful. I personally have some display selenite that I keep on my mantle. The room is quite sunny, but the selenite itself is never in direct sunlight and has maintained it's color for several years.
I hope this clears things up for you, and again, it depends on what you intend to do with it and how you'll be using it.
