Gemstone: Rainbow Moonstone
Rainbow Moonstone is a type of feldspar; the sheen is caused by light diffraction within its layers. This stone has had great importance since early times; it has been worn in Ancient Rome as far back as 2000 years where it was thought to be formed from drops of moonlight.
Moonstone is a stone of “New Beginnings” aiding in inner growth and renewal. It strengthens intuition, inspiration and promotes confidence and success. It also helps balance the emotions, promoting a calm mood, and harmony. A good protective stone for travellers.
Rainbow Moonstone is also thought to connect the wearer to the “greater picture” reminding that you are part of an ongoing cycle; helping you to find your life plan and how it is interconnected to others.
Moonstone is one of the birthstones of June.
