Also called Shaman Stones, Mochi Marbles, Moqui Balls©, or Maqui Marbles, these fascinating brown spheres are sandstone and iron concretions (a hard, solid accumulation of minerals) from the Navajo Sandstone in southeast Utah. The word “Moqui” comes from the Hopi language meaning “the dead” and it is said that the deceased ancestors of the Hopi people came to Earth to play with these “marbles” at sunset.
These brown and tan stony spheres are often used and sold in pairs. The spherical stones are considered female, and the ridged, flying saucer–shaped discs are considered male. Moqui Marbles can be held in each hand (female stone in left hand) to ground and protect the user and balance one’s energy.
Moqui Marbles are associated with the element of Earth and, as such, can give one a greater sense of belonging, either with people or the earth itself, without feeling stifled.
They are used for the protection of the home to guard against burglary, troublemakers, and natural occurrences such as lightning, fires and floods.
Hold a Moqui Marble in each hand before bedtime to ease the mind and alleviate insomnia.

| I am always feeling a sense of peace and learn so much from this site. I surf so many meta sites. I always come back here.|
I am going to order these Moqui Balls; they are not in my sign or vibration but I feel such a connection. (Submitted by: MUGSY on April 05, 2021)
