Moonstone- The Calming Gem

Moonstone Is A Holder of Many Properties

When I first heard of this stone I was very intrigued and had to find out more about it. I enjoy researching gemstones and minerals and learning about their special qualities. I was pleased to find that Moonstone has quite a long history.

While this semi-precious gem may not be well known, I think it is certainly a gorgeous gemstone. I love the pure look and the surreal but simple sparkle. You can wear this jewel with anything and everything and watch it magically reflect the surrounding colors. And since this is a natural stone, there are no two that are alike.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if just by having an object in your possession you felt calm, protected and had more energy?

I think anyone would be happy to possess a stone that would accomplish all of these things. I know that I would. In my research, I found that according to legend, Moonstone is a holder of all of these properties and more. Each culture has had its own interpretation of this fabulous gemstone. It is considered a feminine stone but also one to bring out men’s emotions. This gemstone has been considered a protector of pregnancy and childbirth. Some cultures believe that by carrying this stone, fertility will be increased. It also promotes growth and renewed energy. It has been called “holy” and “a dreamer’s stone”. The most common healing property of Moonstone is its calming effect and stress relief. This is a perfect stone to use while meditating.

Since I had not heard of Moonstone before, I wasn’t sure where I could purchase such a gemstone. Surely I had not seen it in my local department store.

I found to my delight quite a few unique jewelry pieces online and especially at Amazon.com. I chose a few of my favorites to share with you.

If you are wondering where Moonstone comes from as I did, it is part of the mineral group Feldspar.

I had never heard of Feldspar before and how interesting it is that this mineral covers a good portion of the earth. The right two species of feldspar need to combine and layer in order to produce Moonstone. It is usually translucent and will take on surrounding color which gives it a warm glow. It is this reflection of light that makes this stunning gemstone appear to change colors.
