Moonstone Meaning

As ancient as the moon itself, the meaning of Moonstone lies within its energy. This power can nourish, give passion, and awaken your feminine energies. It can heal and guide you to your inner path. Together with the waxing and waning of the moon, it evokes tranquility that has a sensual, esoteric feel to it. It exudes a glowing vitality that can re-energize the mind and body and wash negativity away. Since it is enveloped by strong rays of gold, blue, and purple, Moonstone is perpetually embraced with gleaming white energy that makes it a protective gem.


Moonstone Origins

Moonstone is part of the mineral family of feldspars. It’s an opalescent stone that comes from colorless form to peach, pink, green, gray, yellow, brown, and blue. The play of light seen on Moonstone is called adularescence and the clarity goes from transparent to translucent.


The most prized moonstone is from Sri Lanka and India. Blue moonstones are highly valued because of their rarity. Such stones can only be found in Sri Lanka. While India is famed for producing Rainbow Moonstones. The most historically interesting moonstone mines are found in Switzerland's Adula Mountains. Other mines around the globe can be found in Myanmar, Brazil, Norway, USA, Australia, Germany, Tanzania, India, and Madagascar.


Metaphysical Properties

A gem for intuition, balance, and wishes, Moonstone helps harbor our feminine side. It can aid in distinguishing what is merely needed in life versus what is wanted. As you wear your Moonstone on a regular basis, you will start to realize the negative energies that play in the grand scheme of your being and eventually learn to heal yourself. If the gem is clearer then it will host a more colorful luster and have stronger healing powers.


Aside from being a stone of protection for traveling at night, voyaging at sea, childbirth, and pregnancy, it also cleanses the digestive system and cures obesity, water retention, and menstrual problems. Linked with the crown, third eye, and heart chakras, Moonstone calms and relieves stress while releasing the love of all kinds.


Moonstone is a powerful gem that can mean a lot of things with its diverse healing effects. It is a balancing gem, a birthstone, a lucky stone, a sacred crystal, a piece of eccentric jewelry, and a wedding gift. But one thing rings the loudest, Moonstone is from the magic of the moon.

  • Moonstone:
    A.k.a the rainbow stone.
    Hold this very stone up to some light and it reflects of a beautiful ray of colour! This stone is a very majestic one to wear as a pendant, don’t forget Moonstone picks up colour in its own energetic way. So this very stone looks great with a fine setting and a light or dark skin tone to capture the milky white iridescence.
