A Little History

Was used in Ancient Times to keep sailors safe during sea voyages because of the Moons strong influence on the flow of the tides.

During a Waxing Moon - (More than half of the Moon is lit up) Magicians would use this time to increase the magic of their spells.

It is believed that if you are wishing for true love to come your way, to quote an affirmation (repeating a positive sentence over and over again until it changes any negative thoughts) and hold a Moonstone in your hand during a full moon, then await until the next full moon and hold your Moonstone in your hand once more.

Some Ancients Cultures believed that Moonstones were created from moonbeams.

Similar to the Phenomenon Labradorescence of the Labradorite Gemstone, Moonstones are referred to as Adularescence which is best described as a kind of milky-bluish flash of light on the surface of these Gemstones that is caused when a light source is reflected between the many layers of the minerals within the Moonstones.
