According to a Hindu myth moonstone is made of solidified moonbeams. If you look at de soft white colored moonstone you immediatly know why: that milky dreamy appearance. The soft white colour is not the only colour, there are also moonstones in a soft salmon orange or a gray hue. Especially the combination of these three colours make moonstone special. Besides being a beautiful stone, moonstone is also a good luck bringer. And it is believed that if you put a moonstone in your mouth (don’t swallow it!) during full moon you can see the future.
The moonstone harmonizes the hormonal system, and helps against stomach acid and menstrual disorders. The moonstone also promotes satisfaction and soothes your emotional life. Chakra: 2nd or sacral chakra.
