Moonstone has been used in jewelry for centuries. The Romans admired moonstone, as they believed it was actually formed from moon-rays. It is the stone of moon goddesses everywhere. Moonstone is composed of two feldspar species, orthoclase and albite. During formation the two species intermingle and then separate into layers producing the phenomenon called adularescence. Deposits of moonstone occur in Australia, the Austrian Alps, Mexico, Madagascar, Burma, Norway, Poland, India, Sri Lanka, and the United States. Our Peach Moonstone was collected from deposits in Africa. Moonstone is a stone of protection, especially during childbirth, pregnancy, and travel at sea. Peach Moonstone supports the heart through the mind as it calms anxiety and soothes away worry. It is also associated with love of all kinds. You can charge your stone by leaving it on the window sill during a full moon.
