As ancient as the moon itself, Moonstones have a meaning that lies within their energy. Their power can nourish and give passion, it can heal and guide you to your inner path.
Working in turn with the moon, Moonstones bring out a sensual energy that re-energies the mind, and body and washes negative feelings away. For centuries the Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the moon and a symbol of protection for travelers, a gift for lovers, a channel of prophecy, and a path to wisdom. We have fallen in love with these gorgeous pearlescent gems with their ocean-blue sheen and are obsessing over the power of their energy and the ancient secrets they hold within their pearly veil. Our ethically sourced moonstones are of the highest quality and feature the most beautiful soft, watery opaqueness and a silvery-white reflection called chatoyancy that moves as a line across the surface of your moonstone as the light varies. To maintain the quality of our Moonstone range it's important we protect, clean, and charge our moonstones properly to ensure we can enjoy their natural beauty and wisdom for years to come. So here are some simple maintenance tips to keep your Moonstone jewellery gleaming each time you wear it.
Treat Them Delicately
It is important to remember that Moonstones are delicate and natural gems that are often prone to scratching if not looked after properly. It is best to try and avoid exposing your Moonstone to any robust activities such as household chores or gardening. It is also important to keep in mind that Moonstones may portray inclusions, these are tiny internal tension lines, which should not be mistaken as cracks or damage, but instead are beautiful organic and natural elements of your Moonstone, making it as unique as you.
Make sure not to use steam or ultrasonic cleaners with your Moonstone, these will be harmful to the natural stone integrity. Instead, try soaking your moonstone in a small bowl of warm soapy water for a couple of minutes. Avoid scrubbing the stone so that it is not damaged and remains as beautiful as ever. If you find your Moonstone still has a small amount of dirt present after soaking in the warm soapy water, then it is time to use a soft bristle brush to help wipe away any excess grime. Just remember no harsh scrubbing we want the beauty of your moonstone to stay intact.
Cleanse in Salt Water
Another way to clean your Moonstone is to soak the gem in salt water. Salt has always been known as an effective purifier.
After soaking your moonstones rinse them in cool running water to get rid of any excess salt before thoroughly drying them, so they are then ready to be worn. Now your Moonstone will shine bright with its beautiful blue hues reflecting the sunlight.
A unique way to cleanse your Moonstone is to remove negative energy through vibrations.
If you happen to live close to or know of a nearby stream or ocean you can try washing your Moonstone under running water, allowing your moonstone to not only be cleaned by the beautiful and natural elements but also charging it with the energy of the natural running water at the same time. This is also the perfect time for you to sit back, relax, and reset whilst cleaning your moonstone jewellery.
Charging your Moonstones
Once your Moonstone has been properly cleaned and washed it is time to recharge your moonstone with fresh energy. You can start charging your Moonstone one night before the full moon. Simply leave your Moonstone gem on a window sill or an outside area exposed to the light of the full moon. This will allow the internal energy between the full moon and your natural Moonstone gem to connect and empower your stone with fresh and positive energy for years to come.
