Moonstone celebrates the sacred sisterhood

Moonstone Crystal

At Moonrise Crystals we believe that there’s a crystal for every person and every situation. This Moonstone was gifted to a very special person. They were nominated by someone who loves them very much.

She’s 13 years old and her Dad got engaged last year.  She’s glad her Dad is happy and thank goodness the fiancée is nice.  She’s not the wicked stepmother type.  She knows how to braid hair and gives good fashion advice. They can have ‘girl talk’ together and she’s helpful with homework too.  Yeah, Dad’s fiancée is alright.  But she’s more bossy than Mom and Dad.  She’s always encouraging her to do things and won’t just let her be.  Sometimes she wishes that her Dad had stayed single longer so it could be just the two of them again.  Sometimes she feels territorial and just wants her own space and her own parents and her own life.

The stepmom-to-be is being so careful.  She really wants them to have a good relationship.  She already loves this girl so much! She wants to help her navigate the tricky road from girlhood to womanhood.  She wants her to do well in school, to have a career that she loves, to be healthy and happy and have true friends by her side.  She’s trying hard to do this right, but she’s never been a stepmom to a teenage girl before.  She’s making this up as she goes along.  But she sure does love this girl.  She sure does want the best for her.

Their Stone

Moonstone celebrates the sacred sisterhood and the many ways that women and girls help each other thrive.  It sings of new beginnings and new adventures.  It soothes distress and sadness, and helps us to be brave.  It teaches us how to be more self-confident within ourselves, and also how to inspire other women to stand tall.  Moonstone helps us to understand our own emotions better and can provide insights into how other people feel.  It encourages us to be kind and patient.  Moonstone strengthens female friendships and helps girls grow up into vibrant and dynamic young women.
