Talisman Energy: Moonstone is a powerful Barrier Filter. Barrier crystals have incredible abilities to help us focus and amplify our efforts to keep undesirable elements out of our lives. Its crystalline structure gives it strength in all directions, allowing it to provide barriers to attack from all directions simultaneously. Crystals with the earth power of a Filter, absorb positive energy flow but work to keep negative energy away from us. They help us view the world in a “glass half full” outlook, to see the best in others, the beauty in life, and the good in humanity. They keep us focused on the positive in situations and not be overwhelmed by the negative. In our technological world, Filters also work to keep harmful electromagnetic transmissions from sapping our energy and health.
What Other Crystal Authors Think: In ancient lore, Moonstone was a talismanic gem of winter, and in Oriental culture was known as a “phenomenal gem” to be worn on Mondays. Phenomenal gems exhibited a moving line, star, or changes on the surface as the light varied, and were considered to bring good fortune to the wearer. In observance of wedding anniversaries, Moonstones were considered the gift of choice in the thirteenth year. For this number, and for succeeding multiples of thirteen, the gem was believed to counteract the evil influence of the number. Moonstone is the object of special veneration in history as a sacred stone of India. According to earliest traditions, the stone had been set, from the beginning of time, on the forehead of the four-handed god of the moon. Partly from its color, and partly from the influence of the deity it represented, it grew and lessened in luster simultaneously with the waxing and waning of the moon, gaining it the name it still bears, “The Moon-Stone.”
