The technical name of rainbow moonstone is labradorite, and despite what its name would suggest, it’s actually not the same as true moonstone, which is technically called orthoclase.
They are related, and have similar looks, both seeming to give off an internal glow, and their powers are very similar.
However, rainbow moonstone has an added energy that brings light into your mental and spiritual life, and will help guide you through difficult psychic situations, as well as a unique connection to the divine feminine.
The unique colouration and appearance of this soft, semi-transparent form of moonstone is caused by the way that the mineral is formed.
Two different types of feldspar mix together, and then, as the mineral cools, arrange themselves in alternating layers.
These layers scatter light, unlike most stones, which either absorb light or let light pass through them completely.
This is what leads to the appearance of glowing from within.
Rainbow moonstone is found all over the world, with significant deposits in Canada, Australia, India, Madagascar, Russia, and Sri Lanka, among others.
Because it is a form of feldspar, and feldspar is the mineral that makes up 60% of the Earth’s crust, small pieces are very easy to find, although larger ones are rarer.
