Eel energy teaches us the lessons of camouflage and disguise when under distress or in danger. The eel reminds you that sometimes hiding is fantastic, and a necessary strategy. Stay where you are or float unnoticed on the currents that exist. It will become apparent when the coast is truly clear.  

Selenite is a white fibrous variation of a mineral called gypsum. In the metaphysical community, it is believed to be a stone of purification that attunes to the crown chakras for mental clarity and self awareness.

Scientists have been using diaphonization techniques for decades, but more recently, oddity artists have also taken up the practice. First developed in 1977, the process of diaphonization was called "clearing and staining." The animals are rendered transparent (the "clearing") by bathing in trypsin, a digestive enzyme that slowly breaks down their flesh. Then the bones are dyed over long periods of time (the "staining").
