Kinship Ring :: Moonstone Tear

  • Reminder that we are all connected and our beings interwoven.

    This breath-taking gem has always been held in very high esteem in the East. In India, it is considered to be a sacred stone - it is believed to have been embedded in the forehead of Ganesh, the four-handed god of the moon.

    According to Hindu mythology, moonstone was made from moonbeams and could bestow gifts of prophecy and clairvoyance to the wearer. It was also used in a very peculiar way to invite wisdom into one’s life - by placing the stone in the mouth during the full moon.

    In Ancient Rome, people yet again commonly believed that the moonstone gemstone was formed from solidified moonlight. Presumably, the Roman goddess Diana, goddess of the moon, could be seen within the stone. Moonstone was also thought to bestow plenty of gifts to the one who possessed it: love, wisdom and good fortune, to name a few.

    Moonstone is a crystal of many myths and legends.
