Moonstone: As Magical as a Lunar Eclipse

The moon always seems magical, an ever-changing glowing orb overhead. On the night of April 15th, a rare lunar eclipse created an even more supernatural effect, turning the moon blood red as the sun’s rays refracted through Earth’s atmosphere (see photos and footage from NASA). It may be this sense of magic and wonder that’s made cultures around the world revere the moon, and the moonstone. This glowing silvery white gem looks like the moon itself; in fact, the Romans believed it was formed from drops of moonlight, and Hindu legend claims it was created by moonbeams. Other lore about

Red is the color of love, romance, passion, life, and “ruber” is Latin for “red.” Rubies have long been desired for their color, which, being the color of life-blood, may have led some ancients to believe the stones would protect one from bad health.
