Rainbow Moonstone care

Rainbow Moonstone is a soft and brittle stone. The stone can scratch easily and is very fragile. It is therefore important to take good care of jewelry with rainbow moonstone. That means avoiding contact with chemicals and polishes, and avoiding water and bright sunlight as much as possible. It is best to polish rainbow moonstone with a gemstone cloth or microfiber cloth. Only in cases of deep contamination may you clean the stone very briefly under running water. If the stone has lost its luster, you can polish it with a drop of mineral oil on a soft cloth.

Rainbow Moonstone discharging and charging

Moonstone Discharge

Rainbow Moonstone can energetically cleanse or discharge you in several ways:

  1. Moonlight: place the stone on the windowsill at night under a full moon. Always do this behind glass and don’t forget to take your stone out of the sunlight in the morning.
  2. White Sage or Palo Santo : With dried white sage or Palo Santo (Holy Wood) you can clean quartz species by keeping them in the purifying smoke for a while.
  3. Selenite: Selenite rods are ideal for cleaning your crystals. Simply place your crystals against the selenite or put them together overnight in a box or bag.
  4. Hematite: Another way to discharge your stones is to put them in an abalone shell with hematite stones overnight.
  5. Water: Less suitable for rainbow moonstone.
  6. Earth: place the stone in the earth overnight.

Moonstone Charging

Rainbow Moonstone does not need to be charged because it rebalances through discharge. But if you still want to do this it can be done in these ways:

  • Moonlight: place the stone on the windowsill at night under a full moon. Always do this behind glass and don’t forget to take your stone out of the sunlight in the morning.
  • Sunlight: Place your stone in direct sunlight for several hours. Make sure it doesn’t get too hot.
