Black Moonstone is a variety of moonstone that was recently discovered in Madagascar. Black Moonstone, also known as Northosite or Anorthosite, is a silver-grey to darkest grey opaque feldspar. It can be seen containing white, grey, brown and tan colours running throughout almost every piece.
Along with sharing the same compassionate and loving energies of normal Moonstone, Black Moonstone provides complete protection of one’s aura against negative energy. Black Moonstone has all of the properties of White Moonstone, with an extra focus on New Moon energy, or the beginning of things. This is a great stone to bring out at the start of any new endeavor, new relationship, or a new pregnancy. Black moonstone is also very protective, deflecting negative energy, and transforming them back to light. More grounding than other Moonstones, it has a much gentler energy than other Root Chakra crystals like Black Tourmaline. Black Moonstone is especially suitable for New Moon Rituals.
Numerous times a day we all are faced with negativity, whether it be from a coworker, lover, family or yourself. Black Moonstone is here to provide protective vibrations to keep our emotional body safe and stable so that we are the only influencers of it. So often do we let other people and their toxic emotions affect how we feel. When one gets down on themselves, it’s extremely difficult to gather the positive energy within and make a change. Black Moonstone is here to remind you to escape that normal path of emotional distress and push one to look past it. The calming energies of all types of Moonstone will help to maintain a clear head that’s able to make rational decisions in times of difficulty.
If you are going through a breakup or are having difficulties with someone close to you, we recommend carrying Black Moonstone at all times. When individuals deal with stress from another person that they’ve shared experiences or life with, they subconsciously lower their guard because of the love they have for them. When we see a loved one uncomfortable, it is in our nature as humans to help. This can backfire and leave us susceptible to their toxic energy. Carrying this stone around these people will allow you to continue opening up your heart to them. It will also provide support without the worry of their negativity affecting your own emotional body.
It is a stone of protection for women and children, especially pregnant women and babies. It has been used for centuries to enhance fertility and is believed to support women’s reproductive health all around, from easing menstrual problems to soothing fluctuating hormones, to assisting a woman in childbirth.
Considered a stone of the goddess, Moonstone is associated with the moon, the tides, femininity, and the subconscious. It helps sync the rhythms of lunar energy to the rhythms of a woman’s body.
