The Healing and Metaphysical Properties of Moonstone
The beautifully coloured mineral we have all come to love and know as Moonstone in colours from creamy white through to black is a potassium feldspar. It’s a different family group to Rainbow Moonstone that belongs to the plagioclase feldspar group. That is why is looks more dense and less sparkly in appearance. Moonstone is sometimes referred to as Hecatolite.
There is something ethereal about Moonstone in all its colours. It’s energy changes with the tides and moon phases. Every time one picks it up it has a different story to tell, a push or pull energy working on a different chakra point or body of energy. And, just like the tides and moon phases that create such an effect on our emotional body so too does Moonstone. It can stabilise and calm ones emotions, it aids the memory and balances our male/female sides.
Moonstone is the mineral many go to for working on ones intuition. It aids sixth sense, precognition, premonition and extrasensory perception. All of the Moonstone family are female in nature and give confidence to new mothers, strength, self belief and awareness to sensitives and comfort to the elderly.
