Moonstone
There are three birthstones associated with the month of June, they are Moonstone , Pearl and Alexandrite.

Lets talk about Moonstone with its beautiful sheen is a crystal that has long been considered as a sacred link to the moon and featured in lunar folklore.

Colour is Pearly white , cream, yellow, blue. Low grades of moonstone can be grey, brown, yellow to orange.

The Romans believed that the stone had the power to endow love, wealth and wisdom.

In ancient India, people thought that moonstone grew under the rays of the moon and therefore absorbed its mystical qualities.

Whilst in Sri Lanka it was believed that every 37 years waves influenced by the moon hurled blue moonstones onto the beaches. Hope I can be there to see that.

Many qualities are attributed to this crystal in its connection to the moon. It is thought to protect traveller’s at night, and is sometimes referred to as the Traveller’s stone.

Moonstone was used in the middle ages to treat consumption (on a waxing moon), for divination(on a waning moon), and to reconcile lovers ( on a full moon).

It was also believed that placing a moonstone in your mouth improved your memory. Wow I had better try that.

Moonstones belong to the feldspar family- the most common of minerals in the earths crust.

Feldspars are aluminium silicates, which attain their distinctive colours through the addition of other minerals.

Gem quality feldspars are amazonite, labradorite, sunstone and moonstone.

Moonstones as with the other feldspars are softer than those in the quartz family and need to be looked after a bit more carefully as they do chip easily.

Carry a moonstone in your hip pocket to allow the crystals influence to reach the stomach area and help the body to release excessive water.

The moonstone can be placed on the window sill during the waning moon, the moon’s rays will recharge it and attune the stones energy to the receding tides.

Increase your psychic power with moonstone.

Healing functions are –

Balances the body’s blood and lymph systems

Relieves menstrual cramps and other female issues

Stabilizes the emotions and releases tension

Enhances intuition and imagination

Relieves indigestion

Helps us empathize with others

So Moonstone truly is a wonderful crystal.

Lets talk about natural gemstones and there meanings – Garnets

Lets talk Garnets.

Garnet is a stone of healing and illumination featuring in mythology from Far eastern traditions to early biblical sources.

In the past it was commonly referred to as carbuncle, and there were all sorts of myths attached to the stone. One of these was the Medieval belief that Dragons eyes were made of garnets. In the Far East, garnet was believed to stem the flow of blood.

In Christian traditions, this stone represented the passion of Christ and crucifixes were sometimes decorated with five garnets to symbolise the five wounds Christ received on the cross. Earlier biblical sources also wrote that a large carbuncle was placed on a pedestal on the centre of Noah’s Ark for illumination, as the stone was thought capable of  shinning throughout the night.

There is a wide range of garnets that  fall  into two main types : pryope garnet and almandine garnet.

Pyrope garnet – Pyrope types are predominantly red in colour and include: hessonite or essonite, a brownish-red garnet, also known as cinnamon stone.

Rhodolite garnet, a mauve-red to rose-purple stone.

Succinite, an amber-yellow to orange garnet.

Grossularite, a pale, green garnet.

Uvarovite, a brown or black coloured stone.

And Transvaal jade, another green pyrope variety.

Then there is Almandine garnets. Almandine varieties of garnet range from black to green to yellow stones:

Demantoid, an almandine type occurring in green.

Melanite, a black garnet.

Topazolite, a yellow variety of almandine garnet.

Garnet has a well founded reputation as an energising stone. They have also been used since ancient Greece to protect travellers.

Place garnets on your desk to improve your business.

So that common old stone of garnet is quiet interesting , isn’t it.
