Moonstone for Summer: Star Light, Star Bright

Moonstone for Summer

What better to wear under the warm summer rays than cool, fresh moonstone? The gem has long been considered mystical, all the way back to the time of the Ancient Romans. They believed it was created using solidified rays from – you guessed it – the moon. They associated the stone with their gods, as do the Hindus. The best pieces are found on Indian and Sri Lankan beaches, so as you walk along sandy shores this summer wearing your jewels, their powers will be even more potent.
