Crystalline Phoenix® LLC is the legal custodian and caretaker of the Crystalline Phoenix®, a massive, solid vein containing thousands of tons of selenite crystal, which is visible on the surface for over 100 yards. The selenite crystal deposit was laid down over 250 million years ago in a complex array of interlocking, massive selenite crystals, the largest of which we have estimated to be in excess of four tons. The largest selenite crystal we have actually removed from the deposit weighs in excess of 4000 pounds. Each selenite crystal is comprised of compressed laminations or sheets, with the laminations being so compressed in the purest, clearest crystals that they are undetectable. The deposit is surrounded by a massive deposit of Crystalline Phoenix® alabaster, white with thin grey bands. We can supply raw, cut, or polished selenite crystals, ranging from small discs, wands, and handhelds to seat or table slabs and large landscaping, sculptural, or gridding crystals.
In a hurry? Sorry, we are not Amazon. We do not offer free or expedited shipping. We are miners and everything we sell must be dug out of the ground at our selenite deposit in New Mexico. If your order involves special processing (cutting, shaping, polishing) we will make every effort to prepare and ship your order as quickly as possible. Most orders require special packing for shipping. Since we use a professional packing/shipping service, we have no control over eventual ship dates. In the event of extended delays, we will try to keep you informed of the status of your shipment as it moves through the preparation and packing process. Under no circumstances will we ship an order that has not been carefully and professionally packed.
Natural stone is quarried from the earth and as such, it will contain variations in colour, veining and shading. It may also contain inclusions, pits, fissures and cracks as a result of its geological formation. These are not flaws or faults and stone containing them may be used for your project. Often these features add to the beauty and uniqueness of each individual piece of stone. If the exact colour or veining is critical to you, it is your responsibility to visit the workshop to view and approve the slabs that will be used for your project before production. We will not entertain any claim in relation to the appearance or features of the stone where they were not viewed before manufacture. If you are placing an order with us on behalf of an end user then it is your responsibility to ensure that they are fully aware of these requirements.
Please note that we no longer take credit cards.
We are happy to take checks, money orders,
and PayPal (plus their 3.5% fee),
and cash,of course!
We have decided to implement a policy for

Upon acquiring the Crystalline Phoenix®, we established the following objectives:
One artist, Ashana,the beautiful and talented singer, and gifted player of crystal singing bowls, recorded her album "Beloved", while sitting on a CRYSTALLINE PHOENIX® selenite crystal seat. "Ashana's music is a luminous tapestry of soaring angelic vocals and the healing sounds of crystal singing bowls." http://www.ashanamusic.com/
In China, the phoenix is the second most-respected legendary creature (second to the dragon),
and is sent to earth to perform extraordinary works and to help the development of man.
It appears in different stages of the world's progress, and then returns to heaven.
The Egyptian phoenix became popular in early Christian art, literature and symbolism,
as a symbol of Christ representing his resurrection, immortality, and life-after-death.
A "Google Earth" aerial of the area, with the mountains and surrounding desert, depicts a rising Phoenix, protecting the selenite crystal deposit, which is a sentient entity, as is all of Creation. When Trudy Ann Baker asked the selenite crystal deposit for its name, it responded:
Tests in a sophisticated lab at a major university have shown that when liquids, in glass containers, are placed on our selenite crystal, the chemical composition of the liquid (wine, beer, and coffee tested so far) is changed. Think about it... selenite crystal changes the chemical composition of liquids. And how many forms or types of liquids, or things containing liquids? After all, humans are 70% liquid! In more recent laboratory tests, we have confirmed that selenite will change a persons blood chemistry, for the better. More to come on this later.
Tests in Korea have shown that our selenite crystal produces 800-1000 negative ions per cubic centimeter of surrounding air. A pristine forest produces about 400 negative ions per cubic centimeter. WebMD says:
"Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments. Think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy."http://www.webmd.com/balance/features/negative-ions-create-positive-vibes
Most recently, tests have shown our selenite crystal to have a frequency of 244.5 MHZ, whereas, our selenite powder is at 233 MHZ.
"A healthy body frequency is 62-72 MHZ . When the frequency drops, the immune system is compromised. Essential oils start at 52 MHZ and go as high as 320 MHZ, the frequency of rose oil." The only essential oil with a higher frequency than selenite, is rose oil.
Tests have shown that Selenite should never be stored or placed on concrete or cement floors or foundations. This includes thin tiles or carpet or linoleum on top of such foundations. This will drain the selenite! Place at least one inch of wood or natural stone between the selenite and such surfaces. Email us if your selenite has been drained by storage on cement or concrete.
The word “selenite” comes from the Greek “selenites,” meaning “moon stone” or “moon rock,” with the root word “selene” meaning “moon,” and for good reason - the mineral selenite is the near transparent and colorless crystal form of gypsum that exudes a pearly luster which glows and can very much resemble the moon. Selene is also the name of the Greek Goddess of the Moon (a.k.a. Artemis or Diana).
Selenite is a form of gypsum, CaSO4-2(H2O), hydrated calcium sulfate. Gypsum is one of the more common minerals in sedimentary environments. It is a major rock forming mineral that produces massive beds, usually from precipitation out of highly saline waters.
Gypsum is found as both massive material, including the alabaster variety; and clear crystals, the selenite variety; and parallel fibrous, the satin spar variety.
The largest visible deposit of selenite is in the form of sand crystals at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico, where the selenite sand covers an area of 275 square miles. http://www.nps.gov/whsa/index.html
Santa Sabina is the oldest extant Roman basilica in Rome. Santa Sabina was built by Peter of Illyria, a Dalmatian priest, between 422 and 432. The exterior of the church, with its large windows made of selenite, not glass, looks much as it did when it was built in the 5th century. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Sabina
The largest individual selenite crystals have been found in Mexico's Cueva de los Crystales, also known as the Cave of the Crystal Giants, deep under the Naica Mountain in the Chihuahuan Desert. The largest single crystal is 4 feet in diameter, 50 feet long, and weighs over 55 tons. http://www.crystalinks.com/mexicocrystals.html
These photos were taken in the Cave of the Crystal Giants in Mexico (http://www.thecrystalgiants.com/), and show one of the earliest explorers, Leela Hutchison, who is a great admirer of Crystalline Phoenix® selenite and is helping expand our markets.
The Crystalline Phoenix® is very unique in that we find a coral-like growth in cavities in the selenite crystal deposit. Trudy Ann Baker has tuned into the combination of the translucent selenite crystal and this beautiful "Selenite Coral ©" growth and found that, "the selenite crystal unweaves the mis-creations of humanity and the laggards (on the level of the elements at particle level); the cream or white coral gypsum (no energy once brown) surrounds each particle of the elements in an envelope of love with the signature of that particles original divine spark or essence, stepped down in frequency so that the intelligence of the forms (humans) can begin or continue to remember who they are, even if unconsciously (Again on the level of the elements - Ether, air, fire, water, earth). In order to feel this I must say into myself: I call on the part of me that is "Selenite Coral ©" to embody me."
In Edgar Cayce Guide To Gemstones, Minerals, Metals, and More by Shelly Kaehr, PH.D, it states, “Selenite, as I like to call it, is one of the most powerful stones of the New Age. It brings light into the energetic bodies and instantly clears all chakras. It is one of the few stones that does not ever need to be cleansed. It can be used to cleanse other stones as well.”
According to Melody in Love is in the Earth, the reference book on metaphysical properties of the mineral kingdom, the metaphysical properties of gypsum also apply to selenite. She goes on to say that gypsum “is a lovely stone to place in the middle of the medicine wheel; it can bring together the four directions of the medicine wheel and can induce the synthesis of these directions with Mother Earth and Father Sky. This mineral is considered the lucky stone. It provides a strong influence for bringing Good Fortune. It has been used in ceremonies of rain-making by aboriginal tribes….” Melody lists numerous health benefits of working and living with selenite, including “ to extend ones life span.”
Katrina Raphaell, in her “Crystal Trilogy” writes extensively about the benefits of using selenite in crystal healing, and in The Crystalline Transmission states “that this crystal is endowed with a special ability to alter the very nature of physical matter.”
Judy Hall, in her latest book, 101 Power Crystals, The Ultimate Guide to Magical Crystals,Gems, and Stones for Healing and Transformation, states "Selenite stands at the threshold between spirit and matter. A Kabbalistic creation myth tells us that before the universe existed, God was everywhere, but he had to inhale to create space for our world. Realizing he was not present in creation, he fashioned vessels of divine light to populate the universe, but they shattered. Carrying that light, Selenite's task is to reunite the shards of the divine with their source." Relative to Transformational Power, she states that "Selenite accesses angelic consciousness and brings divine light into everything it touches." and "It also facilitates female rites of passage, such as puberty and menopause, encouraging reconnection to the wise feminine divine power." She recommends to "re-empower [selenite] in moonlight." We recommend recharging it in sunlight periodically for short periods.
And according to Simmons and Ashian in The Book of Stones, “selenite clears or bridges blockages and densities in the energy field.” (http://heavenandearthjewelry.com) Simmons goes on to say in his new book Stones of the New Consciousness, “Selenite quickly opens and activates the third eye, crown chakra, and the Soul Star chakra above the head. Selenite combines synergistically with almost any stone or combination of stones. It is an excellent stone for building energy grids in the home or outdoors. In meditation, selenite stimulates the flow of spiritual energies throughout one’s Liquid Crystal Body Matrix, as well as the astral and etheric bodies. Selenite links easily with the Soul Star chakra above the Crown, drawing one’s Higher Self or higher awareness into the consciousness of the everyday self that is almost effortless. In fact, selenite can readily facilitate the full opening of the crown chakra, known in the Hindu tradition as the Thousand-Petaled Lotus. Selenite, when used in meditation, can assist in facilitating the integration of the left and right sides of the brain. Selenite’s role in human evolution includes the stimulation and strengthening of the neurological structures connecting the heart and the brain, as well as the spiritual conduits of energy flowing between them.”
In The Crystal Textbook by Roger Joyeux, www.thecrystaltextbook.com, he states "Selenite is among the most precious of all crystalline formations, and indeed offers great joy through the refined and delicate frequencies it brings. Selenite is a bridging stone between the most distant planes of the beyond-the-beyond and the third dimension. It holds third dimensional vibration within its essence, and at the same time, offers access to the light of the soul and the universe to any person with whom it resonates. The light frequencies of the person using Selenite and her soul merge within Selenite’s Oneness. Although a similar connection is possible within many other stones, Selenite works with the Oneness of the soul in the way that the master calls the servant. The master on Earth, who is at One with Selenite, has at her disposal a clear channel to the soul and to the highest levels of self. Selenite draws Oneness together. The Oneness of the All of the beyond, the Oneness from the soul, and the Oneness from the person using it on the third dimension, merge together within Selenite. All of the universe can have a home within its essence." The entire write-up on selenite is well worth reading...very powerful!
In The Complete Crystal Handbook by Cassandra Eason, she states"Thought to be useful for.. attention deficit disorder/hyperactivity...."
And in Crystal Therapy, How to Heal and Empower Your Life with Crystal Energy by Doreen Virtue and Judith Lukomski, "Selenite enables access to information from the Plaides. It also helps heal negativity and fears, and provides alignment and cleansing abilities."
Because selenite crystal"quickly opens and activates the third eye, crown chakra, and the Soul Star chakra above the head", Katrina Raphaell strongly recommends in The Crystalline Transmission Vol. 3, that "Selenite can be used in crystal healings if you use accompanying grounding stones." We recommend the use of grounding stones anytime someone is connecting with selenite in clearing, meditation, or aura work; as well as when physically in the presence of selenite(in a room gridded with selenite or sleeping with selenite under the bed or pillow); or when sculpting, polishing, or handling selenite for any length of time (our suggestions for grounding stones: hematite, black tourmaline, smokey quartz, obsidian, nuumite). These may be held in the hand, placed near the feet, worn as bracelets, carried in pockets, worn as necklaces, and/or integrated with the selenite crystal.
Contrary to urban myth, selenite is only slightly soluble in water and can be used in fountain applications.
