Na Pohaku La’au | Healing Crystals – Moonstone

Moonstone is best known for its pearly sheen, or schiller effect, where light reflects off of the two types of feldspar that make this stone, orthoclase and albite. These two minerals grow together in alternating layers, and a phenomena named adularescence happens whenever light hits this play of orthoclase and albite. No matter what term you use to describe this play of light across moonstone, it is certainly beautiful.

Moonstone has a rich history and abundant folklore. Its story begins in ancient Rome, where it was believed moonstone was formed from solidified beams of moonlight. They also held that the Roman goddess Diana, goddess of the moon, could be seen within the stone, and that it would bestow love, wisdom and good fortune upon those who possessed it. They believed it would help keep the mind clear, so that its owner could make the smartest and wisest choices in life, and even enhance the wearer?s ability for second-sight or prophecy. Moonstone was a most popular jewelry choice, being such a magical looking stone, and having such benefits for its wearer.

In India, Moonstone was a sacred stone. Its powers as a love stone made it useful as a traditional wedding gift, and was thought to be instrumental in reconciling estranged lovers. There was a belief in India and in Europe that two people wearing moonstone on the full moon would fall passionately in love. The moonstone?s history in India includes the belief that since the beginning of time, a moonstone had been set into the forehead of India?s moon god, Chandra. In fact, his full name was Chandra Shekara, which means ?Person who wears the moon.? The stone on Chandra?s forehead was said to grow dimmer or become more bright with the waning and waxing of the moon (and the waxing and waning of Chandra?s power), thus giving the gem the name ?moon stone.?

Moonstone also has a long history as a ?Traveler?s Stone.? When worn as an amulet, moonstone was said to protect travelers, especially at night, and especially when the moon is shining. Ancient mariners believed it would protect them when traveling over water. Some suggest keeping a moonstone in a pocket, or otherwise stashed in your car or aboard your usual mode of transport for extra protection when abroad at night.

In more recent history, during the Art Nouveau period (1890-1910), the moonstone gained a resurgence in popularity. The French master goldsmith Rene Lalique led the way creating stunning pieces of jewelry featuring the moonstone. Though now most of Lalique?s jewelry is in museums, plenty of jewelers all over the US and Europe were beginning to work with moonstone again. Such jeweled creations no doubt benefitted from beliefs such as giving your lover a moonstone necklace during the full moon would create endless passion for the loving couple.

Throughout the ages, moonstone has been synonymous with the moon, magic, love, good fortune, and protection. One myth says that blue moonstones are washed up by the ocean tides every twenty-one years, and another claims that moonstone will lose its pretty shine and sheen if the owner of the stone keeps a lot of anger pent up inside. Later, during the Middle Ages, moonstone was used for scrying the future.

Today, moonstone is the state gem for Florida.

Spiritual Attributes

Moonstone is said to have many intuitive and emotional properties. It helps tap into the more gentle qualities of love and peace, especially if the person has had to close up their emotions for survival (think police, active duty military, rescue workers, therapists, or those grieving). Moonstone helps bring out an empathic response, bringing feeling back to those who?ve been numb. Yet moonstone is protective as well, and will open a person up as far as they are able, but not so much that they are overwhelmed. It naturally helps compassion and tenderness unfold in a healthy way. This ability to increase empathy makes moonstone useful for people in leadership positions, management, and coaches also, to help them stay in touch with the people they need to direct and make decisions for. For people who already feel, moonstone can bring up old, old emotions that still need to be worked through. It will assist the calming of fears and the smoothing out of hormonal mood swings. Moonstone is a stone of that brings out the nurturing in feeling.

Along with moonstone?s ability to open the heart to compassionate love, it also opens the way for more romantic love. The moonstone has long been used as a gift for lovers, and for those wishing to secure the passions of their partner. One folk tale said that wearing a moonstone in a piece of jewelry during the full moon while making love would increase the chances of fertility.

Moonstone is said to increase one?s sensitivity to the Divine, to heighten intuition and open one up to their psychic gifts. There is a certain positivity to moonstone in that it encourages hope and inspiration, allowing you to wish and aspire and flow in harmony with your dreams (especially if you?ve already used moonstone to help work through any past emotional issues). Moonstone is said to help fulfill the things in life that one actually needs. It does not always attract what you want, but it will always attract what you need, and it will also help you to understand the difference between the two.

There is a long rich history of moonstone being used to help with women?s needs. It is a stone of protection for women and children, especially pregnant women and babies. It has been used for centuries to enhance fertility, such as the ancient practice (still around today) that some Middle Eastern women have of sewing moonstones into their clothing if they would like to have a child. Besides its role as a fertility stone, it is also believed to support women?s reproductive health all around?. from easing menstrual problems, to assisting a woman in childbirth. It is said to help soothe wild hormones, and as such is often recommended to teenagers and women going through various changes in their life (pregnancy, menopause). Considered a ?stone of the goddess? by some, the moonstone is associated with the moon and the tides, femininity and the subconscious. It helps sync up the rhythms of lunar energy to the rhythms of a woman?s body.

Moonstone also plays a role as a sleep stone. It is said to assist with lucid dreaming when tucked beneath one?s pillow. Some believe if you meditate with a moonstone right before going to bed, it will grant you a restful night of sleep.

Geology | Large Volcanic Eruption May Have Caused the First Mass Extinction

Researchers in the USA and Japan say they may have found the cause of the first mass extinction of life.

There have been five mass extinctions since the divergent evolution of early animals 600 -450 million years ago. The cause of the third and fourth was volcanic activity, while an asteroid impact led to the fifth. But triggers of the first and second mass extinctions had, until now, been unknown.  […]

Nā Pohāku Lā’au | Moldavite

Moldavite is a green translucent gemstone that comes from a single meteorite which fell to earth nearly 15 million years ago and landed in the Czech Republic. It is considered the only gemstone of extra-terrestrial origin.  Moldavites existence predates known history. The Neolithic peoples of Eastern Europe regarded the glassy crystal as a spiritual talisman more than 25,000 years ago.  Moldavite was believed to bring good luck and harmony to marital relationships and for centuries was given as a wedding gift. In the 1960’s the Swiss government gave a gift of Moldavite to Queen Elizabeth II on the tenth anniversary of her coronation. It was a beautiful naturally sculpted raw stone set in platinum and surrounded by diamonds and black pearls. There was also a rosary of faceted Moldavite beads with a carved Madonna made for Pope John Paul II as a gift from the Czechoslovakian people.

Moldavite indeed fell from the heavens and scientists associate it with the meteoric collision which formed the Bohemian plateau and surrounding mountains. While scientists differ in theories regarding Moldavite’s origin, nearly all agree its formation coincides with the crash of a large meteorite approximately 14.8 million years ago.  Legend has it moldavite was the green, emerald-like stone found inside the Holy Grail and said to be a talisman for the healing of the planet. Moldavite carries an intense frequency, a fusion of earthly and extraterrestrial energies that are instantly felt. Holding Moldavite for the first time usually produces a sensation of heat, then the heart chakra is activated, and emotional release from laughter to tears may occur. Moldavite’s frequency may take some getting used to, but its profound ability to accelerate one’s personal and spiritual evolution is worth it.  A star-born catalyst of healing and wholeness, this is a sacred talisman of awakening opening the doors to our destiny. Moldavite is a catalyst for quickened inner evolution towards one’s highest good. The changes it brings can be intense and rapid. The healing can occur in the physical body, the chakra systems, one’s dream life and other aspects of the spiritual dimensions. 

Moldavite is a valuable stone for star children and sensitive souls who find it difficult being on earth.  Wearing Moldavite opens the heart and helps return that beautiful pink glow to your aura that is associated with unconditional love. Placed on the heart, Moldavite uncovers the reasons and purpose for why one is here, and eases the “homesickness” for the stars. Wearing, or simply holding, a piece of Moldavite can produce many interesting and instantaneous reactions. Its vibration are so high, too much exposure can be overwhelming. The fluttering most people feel in their chest while holding moldavite happens because moldavite opens the heart & thymus (spiritual heart) chakras. When kept close to the body, moldavite will remove energy blockages in all chakras. If you have had trouble opening your heart chakra and releasing bottled-up emotions, moldavite is the stone for you! 

There are many benefits of this stone, and exposure to it including, activating the dream state when worn while sleeping, helping one to acclimate to the Earth plane. It aids in expansion of consciousness and rapid transformation, releasing of those things that do not serve one’s highest path. Moldavite is considered the only known gemstone of “extraterrestrial” origin. Moldavite is one of the most beneficial gemstones for accelerating psychic awakening and spiritual growth.  While wearing or holding moldavite, solutions to problems will become clear. It’s not uncommon to have an epiphany or two while working with moldavite! 

If you struggle with finding your purpose in this life, I recommend carrying or wearing a moldavite as it helps you to “remember” why you are here. Moldavite will often bring repressed emotions bubbling to the surface This helps to facilitate emotional healing and spiritual growth. Moldavite is a talisman, a cosmic sigil, sent to Earth.  It has its own cosmic Over-soul.  Moldavite has an ability to connect with the Ascended Masters and Angels of Light.  It has the ability to ground Light for the healing of the Earth. Moldavite creates an energy of spiritual protection, preventing negative energies and entities from connecting or clinging to one’s energy field.

Nā Pōhaku Laʻāu | Copper

Despite its red color, #copper is identified with the element of Water.  Its astral counterpart is the planet #Venus … hence, the attribution of this metal to the goddesses associated with the planet Venus, including Ishtar and Astarte.  Today’s magic includes knowledge about the ability of copper to conduct electricity.  For this reason, it is often used to produce wands used in rituals focused on energy management.  This translates into healing magic — especially in the course of these practices, which aims to balance the polarity of the body and remove any disturbances in the flow of energy that could lead to diseases.  It is believed that carrying a piece of copper with you contributes to the overall improvement of your health and prevents diseases.  Another known property of copper is its ability to relieve the symptoms of rheumatic disease and arthritis.

So you’re giving into the hype and you want to know what this whole crystal thing is all about. I don’t blame you! They make for beautiful decor and they’re something tangible that you can refer to for specific feelings, ailments, or imbalances.
