Moonstone is an Orthoclase Feldspar, formed from cooling magmas  deep within the Earth As the magmas cooled at differing speeds so thin layers of the minerals Albite and Orthoclase formed . As these minerals have different reflective indexes light entering the stone is scattered  and diffused in many directions, creating the wonderful changes in colour, known as adularescence. Moonstone may be white , blue or pink in colour . 

It is regarded by many cultures as the stone of femininity and is the birthstone for Cancerians. It may improve intuition and creativity ,provide a calming effect .

Lapis Lazuli is a mixture of the minerals Lazurite, Calcite and Pyrite formed as the result of contact metamorphism when pre existing limestone and marble rocks were changed by the intense heat and pressure of intruding magmas.  The process formed the deep blue Lazurite stone.  Cleopatra's iconic blue eye shadow was originally the dust of Lapis Lazuli stones.. Leonardo da Vinci and other Masters used Lapis Lazuli to create vibrant blue pigments for their masterpieces

A birthstone for Capricorn and Libra.  A symbol of honour, courage, wisdom and truth . May bring harmony and inner tranquility.
