A rainbow moonstone is a milky stone that emits a calming and relaxing energy. It has an iridescent quality and is known for its colour flashes. The crystals can range from a milky white to a marbled black and white pattern. It is a popular stone used to align all the chakras in order to bring about a place of balance and calm. Rainbow moonstone deposits are most commonly found in Australia, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, India and Mexico. Once the stones are mined, they are often shaped and polished so that the rainbow has an even better chance of shining through.
Rainbow moonstone is classified as a White Labradorite while a moonstone is a part of the Orthoclase family. Rainbow moonstones have colour flashes, or an iridescent sheen called labradorescence, and this is something that you won’t find in moonstones since it is more a characteristic of labradorite. Another difference is that this moonstone will often have traces of Black Tourmaline, something that does not appear in moonstones.
