A gemstone for New Beginnings. Moonstone has fascinated gem aficionados for centuries. The Ancient Romans and Indians believed that the gemstone was made of moonbeams and could foretell the future. And as with the moon, moonstone has the power to nourish, give passion and awaken your feminine energy.
How to Identify Moonstone
Moonstone is part of the feldspars mineral family. It’s an opalescent stone that can be found colorless, peach, pink, green, gray, yellow, brown, or blue.
One way to determine the authenticity of a moonstone is by the stone's adularescence. A real moonstone will always have a blue sheen, while a fake moonstone’s sheen will change with a change in background lighting.
Real moonstone’s structure also has layers and scarring. A fake moonstone, on the other hand, will appear as one solid piece of stone with no layers or scars. You may find moonstone with less scars and layers, appearing clearer and more pure, however it will always have some sort of layering and scarring.
As ancient as the moon, the meaning of moonstone lies within its energy. This iridescent gemstone is linked to awakening your feminine energy and enhancing your intuition.
This beautiful gem also has a long history of use as a talisman for fertility, love, protection, and sleep. In Eastern cultures, “lighted” gems, such as moonstone, indicated good luck.
