The history of Moonstone can be found dated all the way back to Ancient Rome. The Romans believed Moonstone was formed from solidified beams of Moonlight. It is believed that the Roman Goddess of the moon (Diana) could be seen within the stone, and that it gave love, wisdom and an abundance of fortune for those who owned a piece.
In India, Moonstone was known as a sacred stone, often gifted to newly-weds. It was also known to reconcile estranged lovers. A common belief in India and Europe is that if two people are wearing moonstone at the time of the full moon, they will fall into a passionate, everlasting love. Moonstone myths, stories and beliefs date back to the beginning of time. The history includes that India's Moon God (Chandra Shekara - "Person who wears the moon") had a piece of Moonstone which grew on his head. It was said to become dimmer or brighter depending on each stage of cycle the moon was in - thus giving the crystal the name Moonstone.
Moonstone has also widely been known as a "Traveller’s stone". Often worn as an amulet to help protect travellers at night, when the moon shines the brightest. Ancient Mariners also believed that it would protect them when traveling over water. It is said that every traveller should carry a piece with them at night time, no matter what mode of transport you are travelling in.
