"I received a Senenite crystal that you put a frameless tea light under so it will glow from my aunt. It was very dirty and stained with tobacco soot. I put it in the sink and sprayed it with a kitchen cleaning spray that has bleach in it then went over it with water and a soft brush. I’m worried that I ruined it?"
I can't say for 100% certain but you used water after the bleach so I think it would be okay to get all that off.
It should be fine. While water does degrade satin spar selenite, this happens over time so if you wet it once, you'll most likely smooth it a little bit with the product and process you used but you won't lose the selenite. Just make sure you dry it properly and you'll be good to go.
Selenite is a very soft stone. It is a 2 on the Mohs hardness scale and you can scratch it with your fingernail. Because it's soft, it is sensitive to damage. With its structure which is fibrous, when you have a natural rod, some of those fibres can easily flake off.
I generally recommend a water wash for satin spar rods and such to smooth it out so you don't get splinters all over yourself and I know from experience that doing that smooths it out. It doesn't disintegrate immediately, just over time from repeated water exposure.
I hope this helps!
