MoonstoneLike its namesake, the moonstone is associated with all things tranquil and receptive: profound meditation, deepened intuition, calmness in a wakened state, and a restful, dream-filled sleep.

Spiritual Properties
Moonstone deepens the yin or feminine energies in both sexes (these are energies that increase spiritual awareness, promote peace on all levels). Attracts spiritual and physical love.

Physical Properties
As the moon controls the tides, moonstone acts on bodily fluids. In particular, it reduces water retention. A full moon is said to increase the powers of this gem, both physically and spiritually.
