Stone Talk: Moonstone

As ancient as the moon itself, Moonstone holds the power of mystery. Its secrets are locked beneath a pearly veil, and with them, our own hidden truths. Since earliest times, Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the mysterious moon - an amulet of protection for travelers, a gift of lovers for passion, a channel for prophecy, and a path to wisdom. This stone makes the wearer calm and encourages the learning of natural rhythms of life, similar to the tides and rhythms of the Moon due to the gravitational interaction between Moon and Earth.

The use of Moonstone in Roman jewellery dates back to nearly two thousand years back, even longer than in the Orient. Traditionally a wedding gift in India, its popularity rose among jewellers in the Art Nouveau (late 19th and early 20th centuries). Moonstone is also reputed as the Traveller's Stone for its protection quality, especially at night or when travelling in the sea, and because of the uplifting quality of hope, it has long been worn as a talisman.

Named for its moon-like sheen, Moonstone is known for its calming and soothing qualities on the emotional body. Its energy is balancing and healing, assisting in the mastery of emotions. It also helps to identify emotional patterns that are stored in the subconscious, and serves as a guardian to contain explosive outbursts.

Moonstone carries white color energy, the embodiment of cleanliness, purity, unity and innocence. The timeless, natural powers of the white rays are those of the moon, the color we see when the moon reflects the sun's light to us. Perfect for the wanderluster in you, or that friend that is always jetting off to somewhere.
