Moonstone

Moonstone...a stone of love. This is such a pretty stone in a milky, iridescent white color with a translucent sheen, that like labradorite, flashes color when the light hits it. Throughout the world, Moonstone is a crystal that is strongly associated with love and passion. It was believed that two people could fall passionately in love if one of them wore moonstone, when they saw each other during a full moon . For lovers wearing Moonstone, it is said that they are able to tell their future life together. It was also once believed that if you hold one in your mouth during a full moon.... you can see your own future. In Victorian times, moonstone rings were quite often given as engagement rings.

Wearing the Moonstone gem is also said to protect those who travel, and is also known as the travelers stone. According to Hindu legend, moonstone was formed from moonbeams, and in India, Moonstone is regarded as a sacred stone, that is said to bring good fortune. It is also believed to soothe and calm, encourage dreams and hope, aid the digestive system, remove toxins from the body and stimulate ones intuition. Moonstone is a feminine stone and is said to aid in fertility, hormonal imbalances, childbirth, menstrual problems and PMS!


This is a necklace I created using different crystals, one of them being Moonstone.

Moonstone is my all time favorite stone. I've loved it since I saw it on a vendor at the Ren Fest when I was in High School. How weird is that, I remember the first time I set eyes on a moonstone.
