Mineral Family: Moonstone is a term used to describe a variety of Feldspar minerals, which all belong to the Silicate Family. Silicate minerals form the largest family of minerals, including more than 25% of all known minerals and 40% of all common minerals. In addition to being a major part of the Earth’s crust, Silicate minerals have also been found on the moon and in meteorites. Silicates are minerals which contain the elements Silicon (a light gray shiny metal) and Oxygen (a colorless gas). Together, these two elements form a tetrahedron – a shape similar to a pyramid – with a Silicon atom in the center and Oxygen atoms at each of the four corners. These tetrahedra connect with other chemical structures, in six different ways, to form various minerals and rocks. There are six main groups of Silicate minerals, and these main groups are further subdivided into secondary subdivisions, such as Quartz and Feldspar. Moonstone is the name used for several types of Feldspar which show a white iridescence when cut properly. Most Moonstones are technically Anothroclase, but they can also be Orthoclase, Sanidine, Albite, Oligoclase, or Adularia. These stones are closely related to several other shimmering minerals such as Amazonite, Sunstone and Labradorite.   

Formation: Moonstone can be formed through igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic processes. Its most famous feature is an iridescence which may be white/silvery, blue, or a rainbow. This shimmer is called the “schiller effect” and is caused by tiny layers of various Feldspar minerals (most notably Albite) which are laid down during the crystallization process.

Mining: Typically mined from primary deposits which still have their original relationship with the host rock. Many Moonstone mines are small operations, small shafts dug out by hand.

History of Moonstone

Moonstone has been a prized gemstone for centuries. Unlike most healing stones, Moonstone isn’t a single mineral or a rock, but rather the title given to a variety of Feldspars that show a shimmering iridescence. Most Moonstones are white or cream colored, but they can also be peach or black.  Moonstone has been closely associated with the moon since antiquity.

moon motherThe oldest historical reference to Moonstone comes from Pliny the Elder (CE 23-79), a Roman author, naturalist, and philosopher. In his lapidary, The Natural History of Precious Gemstones, Pliny the Elder wrote that Moonstone, “contain[s] the image of the moon, which, if the story be true, daily waxes and wanes according to the state of the luminary.” The idea that Moonstones would change in size and luster according to the phases of the moon was repeated in numerous other ancient and medieval lapidaries. In the 16th century, this legend was even “proven” by Antoine Mizuald, an Italian scientist who studied a Moonstone owned by Pope Leo X (1475-1521). According to Mizuald, he carefully recorded the changing size and the position of the shimmer on the gemstone and compared them to the moon in the sky. His research led him to conclude that there was in fact a direct correspondence between the gemstone and the lunar orb.

Because Moonstone has long been tied to the moon and lunar cycles, it is no surprise that Moonstone is often considered a particularly powerful talisman for women and feminine energies. It has long been associated with soothing menstrual discomfort, enhancing fertility, and easing the pains of childbirth. It is also thought to be a lucky stone and in particular is associated with “love spells.”

Spiritual: Moonstone evokes the Goddess and the energy of the Full Moon, a time of sensual celebration and vibrant psychic power. As a stone of new beginnings, it shines brightly, illuminating our visions and dreams, and helping us to chart a clear path forward in our lives. Cream Moonstone activates the Kundalini Serpent, teaches emotional balance, and awakens intuition. Cream Moonstone celebrates female connections and can be used to explore the maternal line and strengthen female friendships and family ties. Moonstone is attuned to the Sacral, Third Eye, and Crown Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Cancer, Libra, Scorpio. It is connected to the element of Wind; and vibrates to the number 4.

Emotional: Cream Moonstone has a gentle feminine energy which can help us to sort through our emotions and understand them better. It has a calm and patient energy, helping us to cultivate a sense of internal safety as well as a willingness to be vulnerable in a healthy relationship. Cream Moonstone encourages us to release negative energies and to be more receptive to blessings and all forms of goodness. Cream Moonstone reminds us that life is a series of cycles and that to all times there is a season, and so we are wise when we honor and enjoy each passing moment. It also teaches us the value of patience, and to wait for the “right time” rather than trying to force something to come to pass.

Mental: Cream Moonstone is a stone of sudden inspiration and intuitive knowing. It encourages us to be open to serendipity and spontaneity, and to trust that everything is working out according to a higher Divine plan. Cream Moonstone helps to calm overreactions and helps us to logically and intuitively explore emotional triggers and other erratic energies.

Physical: Cream Moonstone has been traditionally used by metaphysical healers to soothe hormonal fluctuations and to ease all aspects of menstruation, fertility, and childbirth. It is thought to be closely linked with the Pineal Gland and can help to balance hormones and other chemical systems. It is also believed to be helpful for healing the digestive tract and reproductive systems.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Earth to Pocket

Earth to Pocket is the Moonrise Crystal business mission. It’s the promise that any stones purchased here will be consciously sourced and the journey of the stone, from the Earth and into your Pocket, will be as transparent as possible.

These Cream Moonstones were mined in India and tumbled in South Africa.

I met the owner of the South African tumbling company at the 2014 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. This company only sells tumbled stones twice a year, once at the Tucson show and later at the Sainte Marie Aux Mines International Mineral and Gem Expo in Provence, France. They offer the largest selection of high quality tumbled stones in the industry and are one of my favorite suppliers.

It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Cream Moonstone for you.

Your Stone

This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Cream Moonstone or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Cream Moonstone measures approximately 1 inch at its longest length and has a unique shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty.

The stone I choose for you will be smooth and free of chips, and be a beautiful creamy white similar to old ivory. If you buy multiple stones, I will choose stones that look and feel particularly good together. Stones will be cleansed and smudged with sage before being shipped to you.

With their soft beauty and clean energies, these Moonstones are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, use them in a crystal elixir, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.

Safe Handling of Cream Moonstone

Caution!!!

Cream Moonstone contains Aluminum and as such should NOT be used to make direct-infusion “Cream Moonstone water” for drinking or bathing. Having too much Aluminum in the body is toxic, and drinking direct-infusion elixirs of Aluminum-derived stones is dangerous. You can however, make a safe elixir using an indirect method – simply place the stone near, but not touching, the water.

Good To Know:

Cream Moonstone are physically durable stones. As long as they are rounded and without thin edges, they can be carried in a pocket or medicine bag, or worn as jewelry on an everyday basis, without significant danger of the stone chipping or breaking.

Cream Moonstone can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.

Cream Moonstone can be energetically cleansed using any method. They will appreciate being soaked in fresh water, set outside to absorb the moonlight, and/or being smudged with smoke or incense. Use your own intuition to determine the best method.

Cream Moonstone can be left in sunshine for extended periods of time without losing their color, especially if the stone is opaque, rather than translucent or transparent. However, it is always considered a “best practice” to keep your stones and crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible.
