Peach Moonstone History
All types of Moonstone have been revered since ancient times.
In Roman and Greek mythology, moonstones were sacred to their lunar goddesses, of which there are many but include Diana and Luna, Roman goddesses of the moon, and Artemis and Selene, Greek goddesses of the moon.
Mineralogists sometimes refer to moonstone as "hecatolite" in reference to Hecate, a Greek goddess associated with the moon, much in the same way the mineral selenite is named after Selene, a goddess of the moon.
The Romans believed that moonstones were created from rays of moonlight, as did the people of India, where moonstones were sacred stones.
Some cultures believed that spirits lived within moonstones, causing their distinctive glow.
