Moroccan Selenite Votive
(Based on 3 reviews)
Category: Home Décor/Home Accents

Selenite is a crystalline variety of gypsum, named after the Greek word for moon because of the belief that its transparency waxed and waned. Some believe that it clears the air of electrical pollution. Artisans in a village near Agadir, Morocco, on the Atlantic coast, carve locally mined selenite into this luminous, translucent votive holder. Please accept small variations in this natural material.
