Named after the moon, thanks to it’s shimmering resemblance moonstone is held as beautifully ethereal and romantic stone. Glowing white with a gorgeous iridescent sheen, this June birthstone promotes hope and prophecy. Moonstone helps provide the wearer with protection, wisdom and self-acceptance.
Used in jewellery for centuries, both the Romans and Greeks associated the stone with their lunar deities. In more recent history, the Moonstone became popular during the Art Nouveau period with famous French goldsmith René Lalique, and many others, who used it to decorate a striking amount of pieces.
