With a silvery light that seems to come from within, moonstone has many associations with the Moon. That connection isn’t surprising. However, this beautiful gem also has a long history of use as a talisman for fertility, love, protection, and sleep. While you certainly need no excuses to buy this stone, learn more about moonstone symbolism and its varied mystical associations.
Eastern Moonstone Symbolism
In Eastern cultures, “lighted” gems, such as moonstone, indicated good luck. The ever-changing, white reflections on its surface, which gemologists call adularescence, seemed to suggest a powerful, good spirit dwelled within.
The Lover’s Stone
Since the Moon renews itself every month, some supposed moonstone could help wearers regain or retain a more youthful appearance and bearing.
The Moon’s romantic associations were also reflected in moonstone lore. Those seeking their true love could follow some instructions. First, hold the gem in your hands during a full moon and envision your love coming to you. Next, carry the stone with you until the next full moon for the spell to take effect.
Lovers often exchanged moonstones, especially after quarreling, to help restore love and tranquility.
