Moonstone is a naturally occurring gemstone that ranges in colour from white to cream or beige through to colourless. It has a monoclinic crystal structure.

Moonstone is a popular crystal that is common in crystal collections and among crystal and energy healers and those interested in "New Age" and pagan subjects. In these contexts it is especially respected for its association with the moon, intuition, "new beginnings", and contemplation on the waxing and waning of emotions (as well as the moon). It is sometimes worn as a pendant to encourage acceptance of the wearer's psychic abilities.
