Moonstones are a member of the monoclinic family of healing crystals. Like the ebb and flow of the oceans and the rhythm of our own heartbeats, the energetic properties of monoclinic crystals encourage life, action, growth, and transformation. Moonstone crystals promote new, more intuitive beginnings. Connected with the moon, the unconscious, and dreams awaken psychic abilities and empathy. Wearing moonstone mala beads will have an overall calming effect, stabilizing emotions and cooling enraged and over-reactive thoughts. It helps to create a state of balance where emotions can be controlled, which is the foundation for overcoming psychological problems, as well as physical ailments.
