Moonstone & Sunstone are both members of the feldspar group. While Moonstone holds the feminine, lunar energy of the moon; Sunstone holds the solar, masculine energy of the sun.

Named for its sheen, moonstone is the most well-known gemstone of the feldspar group. The Romans thought moonstone was actually formed out of solidified moonlight. However, the shimmer comes from two types of feldspar growing into or weaving through each other as the crystal forms. Moonstones are particularly useful for improving our emotional balance and aligning our chakras. Many people use moonstones to calm themselves, endure pain, and focus on what’s important.

Sunstone is an interesting feldspar gemstone with a glittery appearance. Sunstone occurs in a range of colors that begins with colorless and ranges through yellow, orange, and red. The color is determined, in part, by the abundance and size of the copper platelets within the stone. Sunstone jewelry helps to restore “sweetness” back into your life as it nurtures and supports your real self, encouraging one to step up and shine out. It is an alchemical stone that connects one to the regenerative power of the sun.
