White Stones, the stones of Planet Moon
Moonstone has always been held sacred in India- a stone of gods and goddesses, of hope and spiritual purity. Many of the carvings on temple doors in India depicting male-female embraces were adorned with moonstones. These symbolized the oneness of our dual aspects and integrated the emotional and dreamy nature of our being, and also the female aspects of our emotional side.
Moonstone has been used in Roman jewelry for thousands of years. They believed that this precious stone enclosed the image of Diana, the moon goddess, who could endow love, wealth, victory, and wisdom upon the possessor.
For being able to arouse tender passion, this stone of good fortune has a special significance for lovers. It has been a traditional wedding gift; a stone of love and eroticism, one which stimulates kundalini energy and physical desires.
Moonstone carries white color energy; the timeless, natural powers of the white rays are the sun’s light as reflected by the moon.
It powerfully affects the female reproductive system, enhancing fertility and promoting hormonal balance with the advancing years. At the time of a full moon or menstruation, women need to be careful of their sensitive emotional nature and remove these stones.
Partly from its color, and partly from the influence of the deity it represents, its luster is said to strengthen the faith of hermits, monks, sadhus and others who have renounced the material world.
It comes in almost transparent white colors, sometimes with a blue light and in warmer tones of cream. The clear finely polished ones serve best.
I recommended moonstone to men, to help them open their feminine or emotional side, and many friends have asked that I get this stone for their sons.
Moonstone is the Zodiac stone for those born under the sign of Cancer. It is considered a gift of choice for the 30th wedding year.
Pearl has been known for their healing properties for centuries, particularly in traditional Asian healing systems where ‘medicines’ deals with more than just physical ailments and cures, and substances like gold, silver, and pearl powder are believed to have both physical and metaphysical effects. Curative powers of pearl come from its calcium, mineral, and protein content.
It is the jewel of the sea and is found in the shells of oysters. The grain of sand or another irritant, which is the causative seed in the development of the pearl, gives us the message of transmutation.
Pearl signifies faith, charity and innocence. It symbolizes purity and is known as a stone of sincerity. It enhances personal integrity and helps to provide a focus to one’s attention.
We can compare the pearl to our own development, our struggle for inner growth, and realize that no matter how humble or oppressed, we can all attain the incredible beauty of a pearl. The message of the pearl tells us that we can become inwardly free by shattering mental and emotional patterns; we can change and grow beautiful.
Pearl absorbs negative energy from the wearer and boomerangs it back though this may appear to be painful, it actually aids the wearer when he or she needs to deal with self-confrontation.
Naturally, sea-grown pearls are more powerful than cultured pearls. The luster varies depending upon the temperature of the seawater the pearl grew in. when pearls get dull; a good way to refresh their luster is to dip them into their natural home- seawater.
Never mix pearls with other stones, especially the diamond, as any conflicts of self would be greatly magnified and the combination could create a great deal of disharmony. If you are drawn to the pearl, it may mean that purification through self-confrontation is important to you.
