All of my crystals are cleansed with selenite. As for selenite itself, some claim that it lies amongst the stones that are self cleansing; and that's logical to believe given that it cleanses others so well. That said, I think that a judgment call as such lies in the perception of the owner. If you feel a stone doesn't need you to cleanse it, then that's true until you feel that it does; and if you feel that it never does, that's fine too - for you. This stone should not be cleansed with water; it is a soft mineral with a hardness of only 2. Selenite crystals are quite popular due to their high vibration; they are ideal for use with any work related to the crown and pineal chakras, this including the opening of the crown chakra.
The energy of this stone makes it a wonderful tool for use in meditation and dreamwork; and as well it promotes psychic ability and intuitive awareness. It can assist in all types of spiritual tasks, including communicating with ascended and angelic beings and in aura healing. Its vibration frequency provides an ideal setting to allow for clarity of thought and mind, and the same energy allows us to feel truly at peace. The peace comes from experiencing everything as it should be, from the perspective of our authentic self. Its protective properties are so strong that it is a common choice for use in protection grids.

Selēnē is a Greek word for the Moon. No wonder, as it does have a moonlight like glow to it. To use this stone to cleanse other crystals and tools, what works best is to make a bed out of rectangular logs. Just sit the tools on the selenite logs, and that's all there is to it. The amount of time it takes for effective cleansing is what feels right to you. Selenite is most commonly used in the form of white, translucent, or satin spar crystal, but can also be found as desert rose and gypsum flower.
