MOONSTONE

Moonstone is a pearly white stone that can range from colorless to brown and everything in between. It generally has a silky luster with a blue or white sheen and ranges from transparent to translucent, resembling moonshine. The cause of its luminescence is due to the internal structure of the stone, which causes light rays to be refracted and scatter. They are found in Sri Lanka, India, Mexico, Europe, and Madagascar.
Moonstone is found in Brazil, Germany, India, Madagascar, Mexico, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and the United States.
Moonstone was used in jewelry by the Romans who believed that the stone was formed from the light of the moon. Moonstone is considered a sacred stone in India.
It is believed to bring good fortune, to enhance passion, and balance the yin and yang and is said to protect women and children. In early times, it was believed that one could see the future if the stone was held in the mouth during a full moon. According to legend, moonstone will ensure abundant crops
Moonstone's healing properties are said to promote digestion, to protect against epilepsy, to calm emotions, cure headaches and nose bleeds, and protect against sun stroke.
