Stone of the month- Moonstone

Fine Silver & 14k Gold filled crochet wrapped Moonstones

A stone for “new beginnings”,  Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength.  It soothes emotional instability and stress, and stabilizes the emotions, providing calmness.  Moonstone enhances intuition, promotes inspiration, success and good fortune in love and business matters. (2)

The Moonstone is characterized by an enchanting play of light. Indeed it owes its name to that mysterious shimmer which always looks different when the stone is moved and is known in the trade as ‘adularescence’. In earlier times, people believed they could recognize in it the crescent and waning phases of the moon. Classical moonstones are always cut as cabochons, the most important thing being the correct height of the stone. The cutter must also align the axes of the crystal precisely into the zenith of the stone, for that is the only way in which he will bring about the desired light effect. (1)
