What is a Sri Lanka Moonstone ?
Sri Lankan moonstone is distinguished by its blue, white and gray tones.
Natural moonstones that come from Sri Lanka have shades of white, blue and gray. Natural moonstones are more expensive than cut moonstones. The intensity of the power of moonstones is very difficult to quantify. There are no physical indicators, such as weight, size or shape, to determine the quality of a moonstone. There is only the feeling of the people who own a moonstone and the pure beauty of this gemstone.
Sri Lanka is a place where there are many gemstone mines. For years, most of the quarries were operated by the mafia. The workers were paid in cash to avoid declaring their income. Because of this, many of these stones became illegal over time.
Because of their small size, you could easily mistake them for ordinary rocks. However, if you rub them between your fingers, you will find that they are very shiny and transparent stones. The larger ones look like pieces of glass. Today, many moonstones from Sri Lanka have been destroyed by washing operations. It is difficult to find any that are not fakes. However, there is a method to distinguish them from real stones. If you roll the stone between your fingers and it becomes translucent, it is probably a fake. Genuine stones should never change color.
How are moonstones mined in Sri Lanka?
Typical Sri Lankan moonstone mine.
Some moonstones in Sri Lanka are found in places where they are easier to mine than in other places. Some stones are also more difficult to mine than others. The process of extraction therefore varies considerably.
Some people start by searching for natural moonstones, then pulling them out of the mountain by hand. Others use a hammer and chisel to extract some from cracks and rocks. Others even use explosives. The natural blue moonstones are then cut into a specific shape, which can take up to a year. Cut moonstones are fairly easy to distinguish from natural moonstones, and they are not as expensive as natural moonstones.
Why are Sri Lankan moonstones rare?
Moonstones are among the most difficult gems to find.
The main reason why Sri Lankan moonstones are so rare is that they are extremely difficult to find. It is a natural stone, so it must form on the surface. Areas with high concentrations of moonstones are often in places surrounded by mountains. Direct sunlight does not penetrate them, which means that these stones cannot form.
Also, moonstones cannot be produced in a laboratory. It is also not possible to find natural moonstones in mines. The only way to find new stones is to go looking for places where they are likely to be found and the country of Sri Lanka is one of the places with the most deposits on Earth.
There are also many fake moonstones that have been created in a laboratory, but they are not as easy to make as they seem, and they are relatively expensive. Genuine moonstones that come from Sri Lanka should never change color or lose their power, even if exposed to sunlight.
How to recognize a moonstone from Sri Lanka ?
You can determine the origin of your moonstone by spinning it as slowly as possible. If it spins with some difficulty and tends to lose momentum, it means you have a low quality moonstone. If it spins easily, it means it is of good quality and certainly comes from Sri Lanka. If your moonstone chooses to spin in one direction rather than another, it means it is very powerful.
Not all moonstones are created equal. The nature of natural moonstones varies considerably. Also, not all cut moonstones are created equal. They have different properties depending on their size, shape and color (blue, white, grey), and they have been cut with more or less care. There are moonstones that can heal a person in less than a week, while others can take years.
Why is a heart-shaped moonstone more powerful than a sphere-shaped moonstone? Because the heart is a representation of the center of everything. The heart is the central part of the human body and, although scientists are unable to find the reason, they have established that this is where all life energies are concentrated.
The heart is a focal point of energy, and its location is one of the places where the most can be achieved using moonstones. There are, of course, other places within the human body where higher levels of consciousness can be reached, but the heart, as a focal point, is the most powerful.
