Moonstone got its name from its otherworldly moon-like sheen.  Ancient Romans believed it was magically formed from the moonlight.  Moonstone has always been connected to the magic and mystery of the moon which in many spiritual traditions represents the divine feminine.

Moonstone is known as a stone of feminine energy.  It is said to balance emotions as well as hormonal and reproductive issues.  It is used as a fertility crystal and as a source of protection during pregnancy and childbirth.  Moonstone is believed to cultivate compassion and empathy.  It can help both men and women get in touch with their emotional and nurturing qualities.
