The month of June has three birthstones: the pearl, alexandrite and the moonstone. In this blog post, I will tell you all about the power of moonstone, the real feminine gemstone, that gives life and hope.
Why is it wise to wear jewelry made of moonstone?
For ages, moonstone is considered as a very powerful and great gemstone to wear. Already more than 2000 years ago in the Far East, like in India, one thought that the moonstone was a piece of petrified moonbeam and a piece of this gemstone was used as an amulet. Moonstone could give you a long and prosperous and healthy life. And it could be used to enhance fertility, financial luck, and happiness in marriage. To be sure that that happiness would occur people put a moonstone in the seam of their clothing.
In the Middle East, the moonstone is a typical feminine gemstone since it supposed to get you fertility and devoted love from your husband.
In the Greek and Roman Empires moonstone was considered as one of the most important gemstones that could cure illnesses or protect you from diseases, including infertility. Plants and trees were decorated with pieces of moonstone to get a better profit from the fields.
The moonstone got noticed in Europe at the end of the 18ste century, due to the bestseller of Wilkie Collins ‘the Moonstone’, although the story is not about a moonstone, but about a stolen Indian diamond. The gemstone got popular in the period of the Art Nouveau, when the jeweler René Lalique made a lot of great pieces of jewelry, using moonstone.
So when you want to get pregnant or you are in your transition period, when you want a happy marriage and a prosperous and healthy life, you better wear pieces of jewelry made of moonstone. You never know, it could help you to get all that.
What kind of gemstone is moonstone?
Moonstone consists of little layers feldspar and the great brilliance is caused by the breaking of the light in the little layers. The smaller the layers the better the brilliance. When the feldspar got combined with sodium, the moonstone gets bluer. Pollution in the stone (other minerals were added tot he feldspar in a natural way) causes the different colors of moonstone. For instance, when iron occurs the moonstone will be more reddish.
Moonstone is a soft gemstone (6 on the scale of Moh’s) and has a mother of pearl or glass brilliance over the stone. It is a bit watery opaque gemstone with a silvery-white reflection (chatoyancy), that moves as a line across the surface when the light varies. The moonstone occurs is shades of white, peach, gray, blue and a rainbow variety.
You will find moonstone in Australia (not mix up with opal or opalite), the Alpes in Europe, Mexico, Madagascar, Poland, India, Norway and in the United States.
The power of Moonstone gives life and hope.
Imagine… you are a woman and you live with your family in the Stone Age and your house is a cave. You depend totally on what nature will give you (food and shelter) and that same nature can be extremely violent in storms, water problems, and earthquakes. So you respect that nature and you want to do everything to calm nature down and give respect to nature. And hopefully, that nature will behave itself and don’t give you any problems.
For food and warmth, you totally depend on the sun, your light is coming from the fire, but also from the moon, that shines at night. And the funniest thing is that the light of the moon comes and goes and it comes and goes regularly. Next, to the sun, this must be a very strong power and you better respect that piece of nature too. In the Stone Age people believed in the power of the sun and the moon and devoted to those powers and they got things back.
As already mentioned, women that had trouble getting pregnant prayed to the moon. They thought when they found moonstone that this was a petrified piece of a moonbeam, that came as a gift tot hem and they made amulets of that moonstones. And when the women wore those moonstone amulets they got pregnant. And the moonstone could be helpful to the women who had problems with their transition periods.
And Moonstone could do more for people, like curing blatter problems, problems with the short memory, problems with the change of the season and asthma.
