With an air of magic in both appearance and properties, Rainbow Moonstones are milky, iridescent stones known for their gorgeous rainbow luster.
If you’ve had your eye on a stunning Rainbow Moonstone ring or necklace and are curious to know more about these fascinating gemstones—you’re in luck. We’re going to uncover the powerful Rainbow Moonstone properties and how you can wield them through jewelry.
Rainbow Moonstone Meaning
What are rainbow moonstones?
Let’s first clear something up: did you know that Rainbow Moonstones aren’t moonstones? They’re actually Laboradites (whereas actual moonstones are a variety of Orthoclase), but they still share similar properties.
Like moonstones, Rainbow Moonstones are composed of Feldspar minerals, which are known for their adularescence—a word that describes the effect of the light diffraction between layers of the stone.
The result? An appearance of moonlight emanates from these gemstones to create a dazzling rainbow spectacle that favors shades of blue.
But Rainbow Moonstones aren’t simply known for their beauty, they also hold beneficial properties.
Rainbow Moonstone Properties
Yes, the properties of these opalescent gems will not only add a physical brilliance that refines your everyday outfits, but they hold a light that transcends the physical, too—allowing for spiritual healing to brighten your spirit and mind, bringing you inner confidence.
Rainbow Moonstone Emotional and Healing Properties
In fact, Rainbow Moonstones are known as a sacred stone that provides psychic protection to shield you from negative emotions, giving you a sense of peace, mental clarity, and emotional balance. When you program rainbow moonstone, it is said to activate the crown chakra—responsible for growing one's spirituality, while cleansing the third eye chakra—which helps in further boosting one's clarity and awareness.
If you’ve been feeling stressed or anxious lately, wearing Rainbow Moonstone jewelry—such as our Elisa Rainbow Moonstone Ring—could be your key to help you take on the day. For centuries, people have carried Rainbow Moonstone as it is widely believed to aid in enhancing creativity. It is also beneficial to keep this potent stone close by to harness its crystal healing properties that help to calm and align oneself.
Rainbow Moonstone Metaphysical Properties
In addition to being emotionally soothing, Rainbow Moonstones are also associated with divine feminine energy and are said to provide spiritual clairvoyance and enlightenment.
With this precious stone at your side, you can access your inner feminine wisdom, intuition, and creativity to make your best decisions, regardless of the situation at hand.
Rainbow Moonstone Physical Properties
Back onto mother earth as we physically see it, these frosted precious stones are Laboradites from the Feldspar gemstones family; their chemical name is calcium sodium aluminum silicate.
They have a hardness of 6 on the Mohs scale, a specific gravity of 2.5, and a refractive index of 1.5.
In terms of palette, you’ll primarily see blue, gray, and white, but—with the turn of your wrist—you can watch a subtle display of purple, peach, pink, and a variety of shades in between unfold.
Rainbow Moonstone Jewelry: How to Harness Rainbow Moonstone Properties
Of course, it’s not exactly practical to carry a loose gemstone throughout the day, so how can you harness the Rainbow Moonstone properties (and benefit from its beauty) while on the go?
The key is, of course, jewelry. We’ve adorned ourselves with moonstones and other gemstones via jewelry for centuries to best access their metaphysical properties and keep our gems protected from wear and tear in the process.
When we don ourselves with gemstones, they can more easily infuse with our auras so we can effectively harness their energy and benefits. Plus, it goes without saying that wearing jewelry gives its wearer a romantic and refined look.
So, why leave such a potent gemstone at home, when you’re most likely to need it (perhaps even more) when you step out to face the world?
