Moonstone is basically the mineral feldspar – a sodium alumino silicate. The moonstone is found throughout the world but it is majorly found in Sri Lanka and Australia. Sri Lanka is a major producer and the stone is collected from alluvial streams. Some small hamlets in Sri Lankan villages have produced some of the best moonstones of the world and in fact, moonstone 'farming' has solved a lot of unemployment problems of these villages. Even though usually white, this gemstone can be found in several other colors. The Blue moonstone is well appreciated and popular for the stunning beauty it has and because of the benefits it offers. It's known for its unique 'moonshine' scattering of colors. Even though its use in jewelry is too well-known, a lot of people don't realize moonstone's industrial use as an abrasive and polish bas.
History of Moonstone:
The Moonstones got its name from an ancient belief which stated that it was made from the soothing rays of the moon, after they cooled down on the earth surface. An ancient Hindu (Vedic) belief is that the Moonstone is the solidified bean of moonlight. Similarly the Romans believed that the Moonstone contained the cosmic energy of the moon associated with goddess Luna. The Greeks believed the stone was associated with the goddesses Selene, Artemis, and Hecate who were all epitomized the Moonlight. It has typically been used as jewelry throughout the ages and its use has been re-invented by modern and post-modern art eras for its use in 'junk jewelry'.
In Vedic astrology, the Moonstone is ruled by the planet Moon. Moon governs the basic habits, behaviors, personal needs and the emotions of an individual. It rules your mental and emotional state. The overall personality of a person in terms of physical growth is reflected by it. A strong Moon in your Birth Chart means stronger creativity, imagination, fearlessness, emotional balance, adaptability and introspection. The malefic effects of Moon include emotional instability, fears, insecurity, restlessness, sulkiness and irrationality. If you want to attract the positive powers of Moon, you may wear a Moonstone.

Wearing Kidney Stone with Rudraksha
Wearing a combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha is the best way to make the most of it. Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy® (RRST®) devised by Neeta Singhal makes the use of both Moonstone gemstone and Rudraksha beads. It is a holistic healing therapy that uses the curative and healing properties of Rudraksha and Gemstones to balance and energize Chakras. In RRST we deal only with natural and un-treated gemstones. The reason Rudraksha Ratna Science Therapy is widely acclaimed by many is that it works on Chakras, the very basis of life and is a holistic therapy that heals from deep within with absolutely no side effects. In RRST setting of a gemstone, as a ring or as a pendent, the bhasm made of the planetary herb is kept inside one tube and the metal that improves the planetary effects, is kept in another tube. In case of Moonstone, Palaash Bhasm and metal Silver are used to attract the cosmic power of Moon. The gemstone is then energized with its precise seed mantra on a specific day to empower it to eliminate all the malefic effects of the planet and reinforce its beneficial effects. Thus the gemstone becomes a powerful talisman suitable to be worn by any person irrespective of his birth chart.
Recommending a Gemstone based on RRST
During consultation, the blocked Chakras that are causing the mental, emotional and physical issues are identified and limiting beliefs are addressed. Chakras become imbalanced when your thoughts and attitudes tend towards fears and negativity when facing challenging situations in life. Blocked Chakras manifest emotional disorders and physical ailments. You can live a successful, loved and happy life only after your blocked Chakras are activated and balanced. As per the Chakra status and concerns of the client, a suitable combination of Gemstone and Rudraksha bead is recommended. As per the cosmic color they emit, the gemstones work on specific Chakras. So Moonstone works on Swadhisthana Chakra and the RRST Consultant identifies the correct finger position for drawing maximum energy from the stone. Rudraksha and Gems are powerful agents of energy and work on releasing the negative energy stored in the form of stress in the blocked Chakras, thereby activating them and tuning them to their natural state.
Swadhisthana Chakra means “residence of the self’’. It is the seat of the Identity, it can bring body, soul and spirit in perfect harmony. This Chakra element is water, hence it refers to clarity of mind but may get distorted by emotions.
When this Swadhisthana Chakra is blocked/ imbalanced, fears and insecurities grip you. You may feel abused, hurt and confused and won't believe that you may be loved for being the way you are. You fear to take risks in life and often end up problems.
A balanced Swadhisthana Chakra makes you fearless by nature and also makes that you are safe and protected. You are creative and have a trusting nature. You have a strong sense of your sexuality and recognize it as one of your most powerful creative energies.
Hence proper functioning of all the Chakras ensures appropriate energy flow to all body parts including our vital organs. Thus Chakra cleansing and balancing is essential to enjoy good health and happiness which translates to overall abundance and wellbeing in every spheres of life. The purpose of Swadhisthana Chakra is to make you get established in your being, feel cherished, precious and special and live a life free of fears and guilt’s.

I have just purchased a mala for my girlfriend from Ms Neeta at Rudra Centre and the bead quality is simply amazing. The same with a close friend who purchased from Ms Neeta last year. Also a few friends from abroad. Although it is possible to purchase beads from a few authentic Nepali wholesalers at reduced price, the bead quality selection and artisanship by Rudra Centre really makes the difference, to say the least. Ms Neeta is a very special person indeed. Ole
