💎 MOONSTONE LORE:
Rich in historical significance, Moonstone was admired by the Romans for over 2000 years, as they believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon. Hindu legend also links its formation to the moonbeams, and it was used by the Ancient Greeks in jewellery and religious ceremonies. 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.
Perhaps one of the most beautiful things about Moonstone is its adularescence, which is the name for the unearthly sheen of colour that moves under the stone's surface, creating a semblance of moonlight glimmering in water.
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 said that moonstone brings good fortune and abundance to those who wear it. Full of feminine energy, Moonstone is a perfect stone to help with fertility, childbirth, mothering and nurturing in general.
