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.

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.

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 Peach Moonstone were mined in India and tumbled in South Africa.

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

Your Stone

This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Peach Moonstone or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Peach 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 a beautiful opaque peachy-orange color.  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 beautiful color and clean energies, these Peach 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 Peach Moonstone

Caution!!!

Peach Moonstone contains Aluminum and as such should NOT be used to make direct-infusion “Peach 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:

Peach 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.

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

Peach 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.

Peach 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.
