Whether it’s a crystal used for meditation or birthstone jewelry, certain gemstones are thought to be love stones with magical powers, which can improve relationships and encourage a more loving state of mind. Rose quartz is known to be the stone of unconditional love, but moonstone also has a long history of use as a love talisman.  

In the past, lovers exchanged moonstones after a fight, in hopes of restoring love and tranquility in the relationship. The association between moonstones and love stemmed from a superstition that someone who finds true love should hold the stone in her hands during full moon, carrying it until the next full moon. Other stones such as garnet, lapis lazuli, sapphire and jade are also regarded as symbols of love.
