Selenite was first named after Greek goddess Selene, goddess of the moon. There’s an obvious reason why. It totally looks like a shining moon; especially in sphere form.
Selenite has been a highly prized mineral in ancient Egyptian cultures for centuries. Mainly used for fertility and rebirth, the stone was polished into an egg shape and buried in tombs to help guide the souls of the dead into the after-life.
