Moonstone Beads

Legend - Moonstone is a type of feldspar with a pearly appearance.  It is characterised 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 recognise in it the crescent and waning phases of the moon. Moonstone has been used as jewellery for centuries, including ancient civilizations. The Romans admired moonstone, as they believed it was born from solidified rays of the moon. Both the Romans and Greeks associated Moonstone with their lunar gods and goddesses.

Properties - It is said that Moonstone carries lunar energy that helps to balance emotional upsets. Moonstone has a gentle energy that helps to ease stresses and feelings of anxiousness. It can be used to enhance intuition.

Description - These Moonstone beads are a pale grey shade.  Sold as temporary strung 39cm (approx) strands.
