Moonstone is connected to the moon and its effects on the earth. Moonstone is all about natural rhythms of the earth, the tides, and life in general. Moonstone rocks were carved into amulets to protect travelers, evoke passion in lovers, open the path to wisdom, and open channels for prophets. The waxing and waning cycles of the moon, which are at the heart of moonstone meaning, are said to be reflected in moonstones with the moon cycles. Moonstone ties into the calming natural rhythms of the moon and mother earth.
