Moonstone - The alternative to fertility drugs?

Five years ago I struggled carrying a child to term. After a miscarriage and an ectopic pregnancy that landed me in the hospital, my doctor warned me not to attempt another pregnancy. Instead of listening, however, I decided to seek out alternative treatments. It was around this time that I happened upon Nature's Treasures, the retail storefront of Crystals by Nature. On an impulse, I decided to stop there on my way home from work. After perusing their crystals a short while, my eye was drawn to a shimmering, iridescent Moonstone pendant.

I am not an impulsive shopper, and yet, I couldn't shake the feeling that this pendant was meant for me. I searched for "Moonstone" on my phone and was surprised when the search resulted in several sites describing Moonstone as "the ultimate fertility crystal." It was definitely beginning to feel like the universe was giving me a sign, so I purchased the Moonstone pendant and spent hours meditating with it while focusing on fertility and pregnancy.* Whether coincidence or through the Moonstone's influence, shortly after purchasing this pendant I became pregnant and eventually, successfully carried a child to term.

A quick search on the Internet reveals that my success with Moonstone and fertility is not an isolated incident. The stone comes up multiple times in infertility, pregnancy and new mother communities. Though I simply chose to wear the Moonstone pendant around my neck, others cite an array of applications, including placing the stone on the ovaries or even in one's underwear! Most seem to agree, though, that simply having the crystal on one's body is sufficient.

Moonstone is an attractive crystal that speaks of mystery and creative energies. With a bluish to milky-white color that resembles the moon, it's easy to see where this crystal gets its name, and why it's associated with feminine and creative properties. The moon has a long association with the feminine principle: the lunar cycle is almost 28 days long, a number familiar to many women as the average length of a menstrual cycle. It's no wonder, then, that many earth-based religions consider the moon an embodiment of the goddess. Moonstone, with its resemblance to the lunar landscape, embodies the lunar goddess and all her powers.

Said to influence new beginnings, Moonstone is a crystal on which people wish and hope. Conception, pregnancy, new life, the whispered wishes of a mother or father to be--Moonstone absorbs these desires, and its energy can protect and work to care for the delicacy that comes in beginning times. Moonstone is said to sustain, maintain and nurture--energies the body needs while growing new life--all while promoting growth. It's associated qualities mirror the needed energies of pregnancy, a process which is demanding and draining. Moonstone can help recharge women during this exhausting time.

I believe that Moonstone worked to sustain my pregnancy, but there are other stones that may also help. These include Jade, Rose Quartz, Aventurine, Red Carnelian, Aquamarine, Smoky Quartz and Unakite. A quick search for fertility jewelry will bring back a bevy of sites offering jewelry with these crystals. A personal favorite of our staff include the jewelry designs of In Jewels.

Regardless of your belief in the power of crystals to heal, pregnancy is a difficult and exhausting time for all women, as is the emotional drain and heartbreak of infertility. Though it may not heal emotional wounds and past traumas, a gift of Moonstone to a woman you love may be appreciated if not for its healing power, then for its simple beauty.

We want to hear about your experiences with Moonstone. Do you know anyone who has successfully used it for fertility?
