Although Women's History Month has officially come to a close, we believe that goddess energy is something that should live year round. And with the help of the divine crystal, moonstone, releasing your inner goddess is something that can be a part of your every day because celebrating women shouldn't be a once a year occasion, it's a lifestyle.
Moonstone has fascinated societies for thousands of years and was once even believed to have contained magical powers that were heightened during times of the full moon (hence the name!). In reality, moonstone is a crystal that belongs to the feldspar family of gemstone that is made up of sodium potassium aluminum silicate.
Moonstone as a birthstone
If you were born in June, this is your birthstone! But since it has such a positive energy, we believe everyone should be wearing a piece of moonstone :)
Moonstone was first discovered in Ancient Rome where it was actually believed that this crystal was formed from solidified beams of moonlight! Nowadays, moonstone can be found all over the world but the most notable places for this gem are Myanmar (this region produces the most valuable and beautiful moonstones), Australia, Austria, Finland, India, Madagascar, Mexico, Norway, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Tanzania and the United States.
Moonstone has a gentle energy that is often associated with divine femininity and helps unleash your inner goddess. Connected to the Crown Chakra and our spiritual center, moonstone has long been renowned for its calming and soothing properties. With its gentle healing energy, moonstone opens the mind to grant intuition and further insight into emotional energies and bringing them into balance.
Moonstone can also be found in different shades such as peach, blue, gray and white, to name a few. In addition to the general properties of all moonstones, these unique shades also carry special energies.
White Moonstone: This classic moonstone is semi-translucent with a milky white glow and carries the energy of the new moon at the height of its power.
Blue Moonstone: This moonstone has the appearance of a cloud-like, blue light and it is known to promote clarity of the mind and inner vision.
Gray Moonstone: Also known as “New Moon Stone”, gray moonstones carry the mysteries and powers of the new moon, where all things exist as potential.
Pink Moonstone: The term pink includes shades ranging from honey to beige to peach, and they’re usually translucent or opaque. Its loving energy promotes inner growth and brings your best self forward in all situations.
Rainbow moonstone: With a more prominent display of colour, rainbow moonstone acts to diffuse energy and clear the mind and senses. It also helps deflect negativity and ease emotional trauma.
With all of these colors and symbolic meanings behind both stones, we've created a few different types of moonstone pieces so you can enjoy this magical energy every day of the year!
