The Meaning of Moonstone

The Meaning of Moonstone

Do you ever find yourself gazing up at the moon, marvelling at its magical presence?

The moon is a most vital and powerful force. As it pushes and pulls the ocean tides, so too does the moon affect the ever-changing waves of our emotions. 

One way to harness the moon’s energy and ensure you flow with the lunar rhythms, rather than against them, is with moonstone.

Moonstone has a fascinating history steeped in ancient philosophies. According to Hindu mythology, moonstone is formed from solidified moonbeams. One look at this mesmerising gemstone and it’s not hard to see why; its luminous milky-white surface and soft blue shimmer that reflects as it moves (an optical phenomenon known as ‘adularescence’) is a visual effect reminiscent of the full moon shining through misty clouds in the night sky.  

As you’ll see, moonstone is a mysterious, alluring gemstone with a wealth of powers to uplift your emotions, sense of self, relationships and experience of the world.

Below are 3 reasons why we love moonstone jewellery, and why you should too!

2. Emotional balance

Moonstone has been used since ancient times for attuning to the ebb and flow of the moon’s energy. Experiencing instability in life? Moonstone offers emotional stability by symbolising the enchanting moon in the night sky, with its unwavering cycle of darkness giving way to light. Through this recognition of life’s natural, ever-fluctuating phases, moonstone helps you to go with the flow and release the frustration of trying phases we experience.
