The technical name of rainbow moonstone is labradorite, and despite what it’s name would suggest, it’s actually not the same as true moonstone, which is technically called orthoclase. Rainbow moonstone is found all over the world, with significant deposits in Canada, Australia, India, Madagascar, Russia, and Sri Lanka. Because it is a form of feldspar, and feldspar is the mineral that makes up 60% of the Earth’s crust, small pieces are very easy to find, although larger ones are rarer.
Rainbow moonstone generally displays a blue or multi-colored sheen, which distinguishes it from other varieties of moonstone.
This blue color and sheen represent the full moon and rainbow moonstone power over the psychic and spiritual world. When a full rainbow appears in a moonstone, it is an unmistakable sign of that stone’s incredible magical power.
Rainbow Moonstone has an added energy that brings light into your mental and spiritual life. It will help guide you through difficult psychic situations, as well as a unique connection to the divine feminine.
