Glorious, feminine, Goddess Moonstone!
Moonstone is one of the gemstones used and beloved by humans for centuries. It is a Master Feminine Healer stone: it wraps the wearer or holder in a soothing glow of warmth, comfort and nourishment. The Mother Moon of the mineral world. This is a stone for new beginnings, one of renewal, no matter your stage of life. Moonstone is first and foremost a talisman on our journey to our inner worlds. It’s mysterious flash mirrors the mysterious nature of the stone, inviting us to look deeper, and find our truths. Moonstone helps us draw out what has been hidden, repressed, or waiting deep down, and bring it out into the light.
Moonstone, like Labradorite or Spectrolite, is a member of the Feldspar family. While it is named for the moon and its similar silvery glow, Moonstone occurs in a rainbow of colors and a variety of chatoyancy (the name for this iridescent reflection). While the inner essence of Moonstone remains the same across its many variations, there are some differences among the varying colors of this mineral.
Moonstone carries the energy of the full moon, and effects us on a deeply emotional level. For women, it’s activating; for men, it’s emotionally balancing. This is a stone for dreamwork, psychic vision, and our inner worlds. It’s a wonderful stone for children, to drive away nightmares or insomnia.
Moonstone is one of my favorite rocks of the gem and mineral world. They are so energetically soft and gentle; as a mother of two young children, they’re a favorite for me in the home as a soothing stone, a sleep aid, a personal talisman, and so much more. But they’re not just for kids! Moonstone is a powerful stone of femininity, and wonderful for all stages of womanhood, from puberty and the onset of menses, through pregnancy, lactation, childbirth, post partum, and menopause. When I was pregnant with each of my children, I wore rainbow moonstone on my person (people?) EVERY single day. 🙂 I use(d) Black Moonstone for alleviating menstrual pains, or to assist in early labor. These are incredible protective stones for pregnant women – these palm stones would make a wonderful gift for the mother-to-be in your life.
You will receive the exact piece pictured. It measures a whopping 5 inches in diameter! This piece has incredible silver adularescence on two sides of the sphere – with swirls of some peach moonstone within the black. Truly a magnificent piece, and one of the largest we’ve ever carried!
These pieces are incredible, powerful, and harness intense feminine energy, supporting the feminine and the stages of womanhood. Black Moonstone is particularly powerful for easing pains associated with the feminine: menstrual cramps and pains, heavy bleeding, early labor pains, and menopause. Men that are attracted to this stone are ready and willing to tap into their femininity and open their hearts and minds to their feminine sides.
Spheres are powerful and potent Earth medicine to have around, especially for those of you not able to work with your crystals as much as you want to or need to. They’re very good for family living spaces or as home or office decor. The reason for this is their shape. Circles and spheres hold heavy symbolism in many cultures and civilizations around the world and throughout time. They represent infinite energy, and indeed, this is what they radiate. When a gemstone is carved into a sphere, it sends its properties out equally in all directions, through every space, into every nook and cranny with minimal effort from you. Of course, our crystals like it when we work with them and they want to be of service; but spheres will sit quietly, radiating their awesomeness into your space all on their own. Just give them a stand, keep them dust-free, smudge them to clear them every once in a while, and enjoy their beauty!
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered.
