Moonstone: meaning, color & origin
Moonstone symbolism: what does it represent?
With its ethereal and heavenly appearance, it's no wonder Moonstone is surrounded by mythology and spiritual energy. The meaning of moonstone is ancient and full of culture; the legend suggests it is a gem directly connected with the symbolism of the moon and deeply associated with women. It is considered a feminine stone, a lucky charm linked to the tides, the earth, mothers, emotions, and the cyclical nature of women. Authentic moonstone jewelry represents a preferential channel of inner wisdom, and the good spirit of luck is dwelled within. The legend tells that the moon goddess is enclosed in moonstone gems and that owning one helps stimulate magic power. Therefore, having a moonstone necklace, ring, bracelet, or earrings directly touching your skin allows maximum communion with assimilation of its energy. However, the legend also tells that if moonstone jewelry loses its luster, it means the owner is carrying a grudge.
Different Moonstone colors
The moonstone is a lava stone crystal with an appearance that leaves you speechless. Thanks to its optical effect, the adularescence, the internal reflections of this majestic stone are comparable to moonlight. Precisely because of these plays of light, it was used in ancient times to capture the lunar energy, and it was believed that the lunar rays gave it life, striking the rock with their light. The moonstone belongs to the Obsidian family and is found in the white, grey, brown, blue or rainbow varieties. Due to their mysterious origins, Moonstone colors are admired in many popular beliefs and are considered a lucky charm.
Where are the moonstones found?
Humanity has worn Moonstones for thousands of years and has been associated with the great goddesses of ancient Greece and Rome, Diana, Selene, and Artemis. As a result, its ancient Greek name was a combination of Aphrodite and Selene's names, Aphroselene.
Nevertheless, the traditional source of ancient luxury moonstones is the island of Sri Lanka, off the southern coast of India, which is also a significant supplier of Rainbow moonstones. It is considered a sacred gemstone in India, shown only on a sacred yellow cloth. In Sanskrit, the language of ancient India, it was called Chandrakanta, which represents "loved by the moon."
A more recent source of moonstone is Switzerland, where some excellent and stunning stones have been mined around Mount Adulare. Adularia then became a common name for moonstones from Switzerland and gave rise to the term Adularescence for their pearly or iridescent appearance.
