Moonstone


Geology and History


A variation of Orthoclase, Moonstone is a sodium potassium aluminium silicate.  Moonstone has been used in jewellery for centuries, including ancient civilisations.  The Romans admired moonstone as they believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon.  Both the Romans and Greeks associated Moonstone with their lunar deities.

The most common Moonstone is of the mineral Adularia.  The Plagioclase Feldspar Oligoclase also produces Moonstone specimens.  Moonstone is feldspar with a pearly and opalescent luster.  An alternative name is Hecatolite.

Moonstone is composed of two Feldspar species, Orthoclase and Albite.  The two species are intermingled.  Then, as the newly formed mineral cools, the intergrowth of Orthoclase and Albite separates into stacked alternating layers.  When light falls between these thin flat layers it scatters in many directions producing the phenomenon called adularescence.

 


Metaphysical Properties


Holds pure and divine Goddess energy.  This bringer of inner peace is an excellent meditation and manifestation stone.  Understanding of one’s ability to create through universal connectivity is found within.  Moonstone has the ability to cast our vision into other world as well as the past, present and future within our own dimension.

As it enhances lucid dreams and calm sleep, Moonstone opens windows to the soul for self-exploration.  The Earth connection is quite powerful, although it opens the crown Chakra connecting you with spirit guides and higher self, the anchor into the physical plain allows Divine knowledge to be brought back into the conscious mind.

Moonstone is gentle yet strong and offers strength while teaching fearlessness.  Moonstone shows us the end is the beginning and cycles of life are vital for growth.  The feminine energy within brings balance and units male with female energy.

Moonstone shows you how to compile all your talents into a great mass of focused energy, this is the state of mind from which dreams burst into reality.  Also helps to improve learning difficulties and is quite protective of its human friends.  Deflecting negative energy and transmuting dark into light through powerful unbreakable love is the continuous goal of Moonstone.
