"I recently gave a Selenite pendant (approx. 3" x 1") to friend. She wore it for about a week when the Selenite started turning black from the top down. The pendant has three blue Kyanite blades on the front, but I can find no indication of bleeding colors, fracture, or water exposure. My friend says she has done nothing except wear the stone, and is concerned about the effects to the stone, or to herself. Any thoughts?
With this particular stone I have never seen this happen. I have used other crystals for healing that experienced a reaction like fracturing or growth, but given the attributes of Selenite, I was surprised."
Selenite is a very soft and porous crystal. I have a personal experience similar to what you're asking that I hope will be helpful.
When I was new to crystals, I put my first piece of Selenite in a pouch with a freshly clipped branch of the herb thyme. The essential oils leeched into the Selenite, discoloring it and giving it a lingering thyme scent. Personally, I didn't feel it's energy had changed, though admittedly, the cloudy aesthetic appearance was unfortunately off-putting to look at.
My best guess here is that the natural oils of your friend's skin or possibly oils from a skin product (soap, lotion, perfume) might be affecting the appearance of her pendant.
If your friend decides the crystal isn't for her anymore, I would encourage her to bury it in the ground, returning it back to earth rather than throwing it away, as the title of the original article's question asks.
