DIVINITY ~ BALANCE ~ FEMININITY
Moonstone (orthoclase) is a semi-translucent stone that is made of albite and feldspar. Moonstone was very popular early in the 20th century and was extensively used in Art Nouveau jewellery. Moonstone has the characteristic milky sheen and exhibits chatoyancy. Reminiscent of moonlight, this tumbled Moonstone glows with cream, and pearly gray colour, and is partially translucent.
Moonstone is associated with the Moon and thus is a wonderfully helpful stone for women. A stone of intuition and insight, Moonstone helps us to connect to all the different cycles we experience in life. Moonstone helps balance the emotional body, especially any aggressive tendencies. Many people find Moonstone to be very soothing and use it to help relieve stress while many women like Moonstone for its ability to balance hormonal and menstrual cycles.
Working with the Third-Eye and Crown Chakras, Moonstone connects us to divine inspiration, and channels it into our own intuition. Working with Moonstone encourages introspection and judgment, yielding easier decision making. Moonstone also enhances one's emotional vision, bringing greater creative ability, 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.
Physically, it is said that Moonstone can promote conception by aiding all aspects of the reproductive system. Moonstone is also known to help with the digestive system, including the liver, and can aid in the absorption of essential vitamins and minerals. These tumbled Moonstones are an important component of any medicine bag.
