Healing Properties of Peach Moonstone

Spiritual: Moonstone evokes the Goddess and the energy of the Moon.  Peach Moonstone is warm and bright, like moonlight on a hot summery evening.  It is 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. Peach Moonstone activates the Kundalini Serpent and encourages us to explore tantric sexuality as a means of worship and sacred connection. 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: Peach Moonstone was a warm feminine energy which can help us to sort through our emotions and understand them better. It gently shows us how to cultivate a sense of internal safety as well as a willingness to be vulnerable in a healthy relationship. Peach Moonstone encourages us to release negative energies and to be more receptive to blessings and all forms of goodness.  It teaches emotional intelligence, and helps us to navigate uncomfortable emotional terrain with ease.  It strengthens feminine intuition, especially as it pertains to relationships. Peach Moonstone teaches us the value of patience, and to wait for the “right time” rather than trying to force something to come to pass.

Mental: Peach 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. Peach Moonstone helps to calm overreactions and helps us to logically and intuitively explore emotional triggers and other erratic energies.

Physical: 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.

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 Peach 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 black.  Moonstone has been closely associated with the moon since antiquity.

Sourcing Relationship

I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.

In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals.  The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows.  The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community.  They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.

In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar.
