Selenite, satin spar, desert rose, and gypsum flower are four varieties of the mineral gypsum; all four varieties show obvious crystalline structure. The four "crystalline" varieties of gypsum are sometimes grouped together and called selenite. Selenite contains no significant selenium; the similarity of names comes from both substances being named from the Ancient Greek word for the moon.  Selenite is rated at a 2 on the Mohs scale for hardness.  Selenite is thought to calm irritation and hyperactivity, as well as protect against loss of control.

Kyanite is a typically blue aluminosilicate mineral, commonly found in aluminium-rich metamorphic pegmatites and/or sedimentary rock. Its name comes from the same origin as that of the color cyan, being derived from the Ancient Greek word κύανος. This is generally rendered into English as kyanos or kuanos and means "dark blue". Kyanite is strongly anisotropic, in that its hardness varies depending on its crystallographic direction, between 4.5 and 7 on the Mohs scale. Kyanite is though to raise spiritual vibrational frequency, aid in awareness and perception as well as help to develop positive thought.
