Stone Talk: Moonstone
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.
