Moonstone is generally a milky, cream-color stone with a combination of tan shades. It can also be found in other colors such as Peach/Orange and Black Moonstone. This crystal is opaque and exhibits chatoyancy. Moonstone comes in a variety of sizes, generally tumbled or cut and polished.
Moonstone is associated with the Moon and is a wonderfully helpful stone for those who seek to embrace the Goddess within. A stone of intuition and insight, Moonstone helps to connect to all of the different cycles one experiences in life. Moonstone helps to balance the emotional body, especially any aggressive tendencies in males or females. Many people find Moonstone to be very soothing and use it to help relieve stress. Moonstone is used to protect those who travel on or by water.
Working with the Sacral, Third-Eye and Crown Chakras, Moonstone connects us to Divine Inspiration, and channels it into our own intuition. Moonstone encourages introspection and judgment, yielding to easier decision making. Moonstone also enhances one's emotional vision, bringing greater creative abilities and freedom of expression. These properties are also enhanced by Moonstone's ability to open one up to increased synchronicities, that we often cannot see due to our being wrapped up in our daily routines. Moonstone can also offer increased patience and allowing, so those newly found synchronicities can flow into our lives unimpeded.
Moonstone prevents jet lag and provides safe travel, especially over water and at night. Keep a Moonstone in a child’s bedroom to alleviate nightmares and provide regular sleep patterns.
Physically, Moonstone can promote conception by aiding all aspects of the reproductive system. Moonstone is also known to help with digestive system, including the liver, and can aid in the absorption of essential vitamins and minerals. Many women like Moonstone for its ability to balance hormonal and menstrual cycles.
Tip: Charge your Moonstone by placing it on a windowsill or outdoors overnight during the full moon. You may notice the stone getting more powerful as the moon reaches its fullest point, and losing its potency as the moon wanes.
