So pretty

POINT OF ORDER: blue goldstone is not a rock. It is glass with copper inclusions and that makes it even more awesome because we are NEVER going to run out of it, and it’s not mined and it is so amazing to work with if you’re devoted to Urania. Similarly red goldstone is an AMAZING Prometheus stone, because using fire to make it.

Moonstone is a type of Feldspar that diffracts light giving it a luminous look. The ancient Romans considered moonstone to be solidified moonlight. The most valued moonstone is pale blue or gray, but it comes in many colors including pink, brown and yellow.

Other names for moonstone: Hecatolit, Chandrakanta, Selenite, Feldspath Nacré

Moonstone in Magick

Moonstone can be worn to attract true love and arouse passion. If you give your lover a moonstone necklace under the light of the full moon, there will always be passion between you. It is also useful to help settle disagreements between lovers and return the relationship to a peaceful status.

Sewn into garments, moonstone is said to enhance fertility.

Wearing moonstone can help protect sensitive emotions

It can also be worn to enhance divination and encourage prophetic dreams and pleasant dreams and to prevent nightmares. It is an excellent focal point for meditation and can also be used for scrying.

Moonstone represents the yin, attracts peaceful energy and brings about a calm, balanced state.

Moonstone is protective of travelers, particularly at night and/or by sea.

Moonstone is considered generally lucky.

Moonstone Correspondences

Astrological Sign: Cancer
Element: Water
Chakra: brow
Planet: Moon
Gender: feminine
Gods/Goddesses: All Lunar Deities, Diana, Selene, Artemis, Isis, Chandra

Healing with Moonstone

Moonstone cleanses and strengthens the aura helping the wearer feel more energetic and positive. It cleanses the lymphatic system and strengthens the immune system and helps fight signs of aging giving the wearer a youthful glow.

Moonstone is also said to help stabilize emotions, prevent mood swings and hormonal imbalances as well as relieve PMS symptoms. It is helpful for women of all ages and stages of life. It can be worn to reduce pregnancy discomfort and problems associated with menopause and is said to enhance female intuition.

Caring for Moonstone

Moonstone is relatively soft stone, 6 on the Mohs scale, so it should be handled with care as it can be easily scratched or crushed. Moonstone should be stored separate from other jewelry in its own soft bag or lined box and should not be worn while performing strenuous tasks that could result in it getting bumped or scratched. It can be cleaned with plain water and a soft cloth. If it gets scratched, take it to a jeweler to have it polished out.

Charge your moonstone in the light of of the waxing moon and keep it out of direct sunlight.

Moonstone Toxicity

Feldspars like moonstone contain aluminum which should not be ingested. However, tumbled moonstone is safe to wear as jewelry and hold in the hand, even for long periods. It is also safe to use to make gemstone elixirs using an entire tumbled stone that will be removed. It should not be crushed and added to elixers, however. Always wear a mask and take care not to inhale the dust when grinding and engraving moonstone.

Crystals for Astrology

This post focuses on stones that not only align one with the energies of the heavens but also assist in learning.

Labradorite: This stone carries astrological energy, particularly the Moon’s, within it and can impart that energy to the holder. It facilitates the transition of intuition into intellect and allows for this new knowledge to be utilized immediately. It brings clarity to the mind by clearing out dark or unwanted thoughts. Labradorite is particularly useful in that it unites logic and traditional knowledge with intuition and supernatural and psychic knowledge. It is used to sharpen the mind in every way.
Birthstone of Sagittarius, Scorpio, and Leo

Moonstone: Again, this is a stone that carries the energy of the Moon and grants it to the holder. It is capable of uniting the holder’s physical, emotional, and intellectual bodies, making learning and development more natural. Moonstone is particularly useful to those who learn and develop in an emotional way rather than a purely logical, detached one. Its energy is extremely “motherly” in that it supports the holder, easing them through times of growth and making their lessons painless. It both calms and awakes the mind, bringing the holder confidence and composure.
Birthstone of Cancer, Libra, and Scorpio

Plancheite: Used in activities that connect the body to higher levels of thought and energy, plancheite is a popular tool for those seeking to understand the influences of the heavenly bodies. While this stone is associated with Leo, no matter what the position of the planets it is able to connect the holder to the heavenly bodies, channeling the energy of each into the holder. It assists in preparing the holder through the retention and processing of large quantities of information.
Birthstone of Leo

Samarskite: By connecting the intuitive and logical methods of thought, Samarskite is able to promote problem solving in all areas of life: mental, physical, emotional, etc. It inspires the holder to work hard and aim high in their intellectual pursuits, particularly when that pursuit is astrological in nature.
Birthstone of Scorpio

Almandine: This stone is a specific variety of garnet which assists in contemplation by connecting the holder to their higher intellect.
Birthstons of Scorpio and Virgo

Cassiterite: This stone, particularly Cassiterite of the yellow variety, has been used for intellectual actuation. It is used to provide the holder with a very precise insight into encountered issues or situations.
Birthstone of Sagittarius

Chalcosiderite: It is often used to assist astrologers as it promotes concentration and persistence, stimulates an understanding of information presented in order to understand the big picture, and it stimulates the third eye.
Birthstone of Scorpio

Gibbsite: An initiator, Gibbsite drives the holder to work independently and do their very best in their intellectual pursuits. It allows one to see the big picture in all situations and opens the mind to new information.
Birthstone of Aries

10 Different Crystal Shapes and How To Use Them


Crystals that have been smoothed or polished from their raw form are usually classified as tumbled stones. They have not been carved into any specific form, but are not jagged to the touch. These crystals are usually more affordable and are good for basic crystal use, including grids, meditation, affirmations, altar work, feng shui or more.


Crystals in an Abundance formation are made up of an elongated quartz crystal with smaller crystals clustered around its base. This is a great stone to attract abundance to your life (hence its name) and is great for acting as a conduit to your wealth and business stones.


Natural points are not necessarily long crystals in a wand-like formation. They are any part of a faceted crystal with a point that has formed naturally, and has not been carved to perfection. These types of stones must be used with caution as the point draws energy to the body (when pointed toward a person) or it draws energy away from the body (when pointed away from the body). These properties make it a great tool for cleansing and healing work.


The Phantom formation is slightly difficult to find. These crystals have a hazy image within them, although most of the crystal is particularly transclucent. This phantom of ghost within the crystal is said to carry a vast array of information for the past, making it a powerful tool for past-like work and healing. Depending on the crystal that the phantom is found within, additional properties will apply. However, any Phantom formation will be a powerful stone to shake out your skeletons and pave a healthy path for growth.


A Generator will have six facets (of equal or unequal proportions) that meet into one point. It gets its name for its ability to generate amplified energy, boosting the power of other stones, or the stone it is made of. This type of formation is also very powerful for charging other stones.


These stones are elusive because they appear ordinary from the outside. However, when they are opened or broken they reveal a hollow cave with crystals sparkling within. Because of their contained form, geodes have the ability to hold energy within and soften it, allowing it to naturally flow out and disperse evenly. These formations are great for protection or for assisting with healing abusive habits such as alcoholism, drug abuse, sex addiction, shopping addiction, and abusive internal monologues.


Raw stones are in their natural form and have not been smoothed, polished or altered. Though they are more fragile and can break more easily than other formations, many prefer the look of these stones as they would appear raw in their natural habitat. Like tumbled stones, raw stones are great for all spiritual work and are often quite affordable.


Pyramids are stones that have been shaped into a point with four equal faceted sides and a square base. These formations are great for warding off negative vibrations or removing blocks within the chakra system. This shape is also a great choice to use in affirmation and manifestation work. The properties of the crystal are amplified in this formation. It is a good choice for healers.


The circle emits energy evenly from all angles, and the Sphere formation is no different. These are powerful formations and are often used in scrying as a tool to peer into the past and future. Because the shape is even from every possible angle, it is believed that light, energy and time pass through it with no rules or hindrances, hence their scrying abilities. They often have flaws or occlusions within them which help with the scrying process, though they can be quite expensive depending on their size.


This formation works well with grounding energies and intentions since its energy is contained and enhanced evenly within the stone. It acts as a foundation to meditation practices and has the ability to transmute negative energy into positive energy. They’re stacking ability makes them great tools for mindfulness and concentration, especially if you’re doing detailed work.

Comment by Arbellason Marucha on November 9, 2016 at 7:46pm

There are quite a few out there, one in Brazil is a gigantic cavern underground filled with amethyst in all directions, It's in danger of being destroyed however as the temperature and humidity is making it unstable. There was a plan to move every crystal to preserve them but I think that plan proved too expensive to do.

If anyone needs help identifying a stone I am willing to help, minerals are my specialty.

Comment by T.E. Pelton on November 2, 2016 at 11:16pm
I was listening to a wise person speaking about topaz as the color and stone for this November, a storing chamber for love energy, I guess for use when you need extra love. Always need that kind of energy!

Multi Dimensional Reality

The world as you know it - all that you see, taste, feel and touch, comprises only about 5% of all of the stuff of the universe. The other 95% is what we have considered "nothing" or the "firmament" or the heavens or mystic Other Worlds. This 95% is multi-dimensional and consists of potential realities that may be perceived.
