Black Moonstone has a strong energy to aid you to connect to the Divine Feminine during meditation. Like the lovely rainbow crystals they resonate within the highest chakras, which may assist with the development of psychic gifts. Their vibration is effective within the navel chakra to help with the emergence of fresh and novel ideas.
These crystals are unusual, because although they look like they are colored black at first glance, when they are moved they have a lovely silver grey sheen.
Many of these dark stones have peach lines through them, and like many peach colored stones they are associated with the sacral or navel chakra. They also make a good connection within the base and earth chakras to stimulate grounding and give protection.
