💎 PREHNITE LORE:
Prehnite gets its name from the 18th Century Dutch Colonel that discovered it, Hendrik Von Prehn. It was, in fact, one of the first gemstones to be named after a historical figure.
Above all other things, Prehnite is said to be a gemstone that brings unconditional love. As well as this, Prehnite can protect its wearer, both physically and emotionally. It can aid in Spiritual Growth, and help with visions, psychic abilities and forecasting.
Worn during exams and business presentations, Prehnite can aid with the absorption of knowledge. It can also help clear the mind and be used during Meditation.
💎 MOONSTONE LORE:
Moonstone has been used in Roman jewellery for nearly two thousand years, as the Romans believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon. It has used even longer in the Orient, and has always been a sacred stone in India with a special significance for lovers, and is a traditional wedding gift there. It was a popular choice for jewellers in the Art Nouveau period, and in Europe was believed to reconcile estranged lovers and to cure sleeplessness.
Legendary as 'The Traveller's Stone,' Moonstone is great for protection at night or on the water. It is a great stone to keep during a first love or any new relationship. It helps creativity, confidence and self expression, and helps its wearer be more successful in their day to day working activities. It is also considered to be the ultimate fertility crystal.
