In ancient times, the moonstone was said to be able to elicit deep passion between lovers. It was also thought to give the wearer the ability to predict the future.
Predicting the Future
The ancients believed that a person could read their own future if they put the moonstone in their mouths while the moon was full. This has been attributed to the moon's gravitational pull and its ability to coax the energy forth from the stone.
The Bringer of Good Fortune
The moonstone is also believed to offer the owner great fortune. The ancient Romans and Greeks believed the moonstone was created from bits of the actual moon. They saw the moonstone as having revitalizing and deeply transformative healing properties.
