Rainbow Moon Stone Meaning
Rainbow moonstones are known as a sacred stone that provides psychic protection to shield people from negative emotions, giving a sense of peace, mental clarity, and emotional balance. When you charge a rainbow moonstone, it is said to activate the crown chakra—responsible for growing one's spirituality, while cleansing the third eye chakra—which helps in further boosting one's clarity and awareness. Rainbow moonstones are often believed to help with personal growth, spiritual development, and emotional healing!
Rainbow Moonstones will not only add an ethereal flair to your everyday outfits, but also spiritually heal and brighten your mind, bringing you inner confidence.
Moonstone Healing Properties
If you’ve been feeling stressed or anxious lately, wearing rainbow moonstone jewelry could be your key to help you take on the day. For centuries, people have carried rainbow moonstone as they are widely believed to aid in enhancing creativity. It is also believed to be beneficial to keep this potent stone close by to harness its crystal healing properties that help to calm and align oneself.
Moonstone Metaphysical Properties
In addition to being emotionally soothing, rainbow moonstones are also associated with divine feminine energy and are said to provide spiritual clairvoyance and enlightenment.
With this precious stone at your side, you could access your inner feminine wisdom, intuition, and creativity to help you make the best decisions, regardless of the situation at hand.

Wearing Moonstone Jewelry: How to Harness Moonstone Properties
Of course, it’s not exactly practical to carry a loose gemstone throughout the day, so how can you harness the rainbow moonstone properties (and benefit from its beauty) while on the go?
The key is, of course, jewelry. We’ve adorned ourselves with moonstones and other gemstones via jewelry for centuries to best access their metaphysical properties and keep our gems protected from wear and tear in the process.
It is believed that when we don ourselves with gemstones, they can more easily infuse with our auras so we can effectively harness their energy and benefits. Plus, it goes without saying that wearing jewelry gives its wearer a romantic and refined look.
So, why leave such a potent gemstone at home, when you’re most likely to need it (perhaps even more) when you step out to face the world?
