Gemological info: Moonstone is a potassium feldspar, a rock-forming mineral of a beautiful, moon-like appearance. It’s part of many myths and legends and is one of the more mystic stones. It is always cut with a plane surface or en cabochon. It doesn’t work well with facets, because a convex, polished, and curved surface displays Moonstone’s sheen best. Moonstone is usually worn as beads.
Metaphysical Properties: Being connected to the moon, Moonstone encourages your body to tune into the rhythms of natural biological forces. It can have a powerful positive impact on the female reproductive system, fertility, and ease of childbirth and pregnancy. As for its emotional healing energy, Moonstone is best known as a soothing stone with a focus on balancing and healing. It drives away nightmares and insomnia, helps stimulate the right side of the brain, and enhances kundalini energy. Moonstone is also connected to the crown chakra, but it can help cleanse all the chakras and balance out our spirituality.
