Moonstone’s story begins in ancient Rome, where it was believed moonstone was formed from solidified beams of moonlight. The Roman goddess Diana, goddess of the moon, could be seen within the stone and would bestow love, wisdom and good fortune upon those who possessed it. The Romans believed it would help keep the mind clear so that its owner could make the smartest and wisest choices in life, and even enhance the wearer’s ability for second-sight or prophecy. The spiritual properties of Moonstone are deeply rooted in ancient philosophies, especially its effects on opening the heart chakra. Moonstone was a favorite setting in gold and silver jewelry among the ancients and tribes of Europe.
MOONSTONE is very protective and a master healer for women, with a glowing energy of renewal, to regain your feminine power and inner balance. Moonstone carries the energy of the new moon at the height of its power, stimulating psychic perception, vision and dream work. It can magnify one's emotions, activating the kundalini energy in women and emotional balance in men. Legendary as the Traveler's Stone, Moonstone is especially protective of those who travel by night or upon the water when the moon is shining. Moonstone has long been known for its calming, soothing qualities on the emotional body. Its energy is balancing and healing, assisting in the mastery of emotions by bringing them under the control of Higher Will, rather than expressing or repressing them. It also helps identify emotional patterns that are stored in the subconscious, and serves as a guardian to contain explosive passions, and to stimulate confidence and composure. Moonstone bestows a depth of feeling, a gentleness within the self that brings happiness to the environment in which it resides. Associated with the feminine, it enhances the intuitive side of the mind. To women, Moonstone reveals their feminine power and abilities of clairvoyance, and gives rise to the kundalini energy. Moonstone helps men become more in-tune with the feminine aspects of their nature, and stimulates the right side of the brain, encouraging nonlinear thinking and emotional balance. Moonstone is also the stone of love.

Caring for Your Jewellery
Scot & Saxon sources AAA and higher quality crystals and gemstones. All beads and pendants are handcrafted, therefore, there may be slight variations in craftsmanship or natural characteristics in the crystals that are unique and individual to each piece. These characteristics are considered part of the character of the item, and are not considered a defect. Scot & Saxon jewellery is delicate. Please do not allow your pieces to get wet, wear while exercising, or wear while sleeping. Protect your jewellery from scratches and tarnish by storing in the velvet bag. Polish your jewellery frequently with a soft cloth to maintain its original finish. Put your jewellery on last when dressing, and gently take off first when undressing. Protect your jewellery from impact against hard surfaces and avoid contact with abrasive surfaces. Avoid contact with water.
Sterling Silver is composed of .925 pure Silver and plated with a thin layer of pure Silver. Silver tarnishes with prolonged exposure to oxygen, which may quicken if the Silver is near salt water or products containing sulfur. While Sterling Silver beads are of an extremely high quality, they may fade if worn carelessly or scratched deeply.
24k Vermeil Gold
24k Vermeil Gold is plated over .925 Sterling Silver. Using a nickel-free process, the Silver is plated with 1 micron of 18K Gold for strength, and then followed by 2 microns of 24k Gold. Vermeil Gold may show signs of tarnish if left in the open air. While Vermeil Gold beads are of an extremely high quality, they may fade if worn carelessly or scratched deeply.
When Crystal Jewellery Breaks
Owning crystal jewellery or a mala is a lesson in and of its own, of learning to let go and release in order to grow. Scot & Saxon jewellery is intended to be worn on a regular basis, which is another reason why care must be taken to ensure they remain in excellent condition long term. A broken crystal jewellery piece or mala symbolizes a broken cycle in your life. It means you have learned an important lesson or cleared a karmic cycle. You don't 'need' that particular crystal, which resonated with you when you needed it, anymore. A broken crystal jewellery piece or mala is a sign that it's time to bring new intentions into your life as you have outgrown the current one. It is said when crystal jewellery or mala breaks you are not supposed to fix it. Instead, you collect the beads and pieces and place them in a place that is special for you; the crystals still work, so keep them nearby for their energetic benefits. You are now ready for the next step, with new lessons and more karma to clear to continue your personal growth, and it is time to connect with and choose a new crystal. This being said, it is understandable that you may feel compelled to preserve your investment. You may request a re-stringing for $50 if you would like your piece restored.
