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.
In India, the moonstone was considered very sacred. Merchants couldn’t display this gem for sale unless it rested on a yellow cloth. Yellow was a most sacred color.
Moonstones and Meditation
Mystics the world over used moonstone for meditation purposes. The moving inner light made a good focus for meditation. Some believed the stone had a calming influence and could assist those wishing to enter a trance.
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.
