A thing of beauty….

I’ve just come across this absolutely beautiful picture of a Moonstone which I thought my readers might enjoy as we come up to the Full Moon this Sunday.

  1. Oh, my. I’m so far behind I missed this before the full moon, but no mind. It is glorious all on its own. I’ve known about moonstone, of course, but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen one. Opals, yes – but not moonstone. It reminds me of Blake’s line — “to see a world in a grain of sand.”

    1. …” and Eternity in a wild flower…” is how I recall the rest of that beautiful quote. (Must check on Google!) For me, moonstones have always held a mysterious aura – I have some moonstone jewellery. And lots of amber, which I love wearing to remind myself how vastly ancient our world was before we ever tiptoed onto the stage….

    2. “….and Eternity in a wild flower…” if my memory serves me correctly. How I love Blake’s poetry. And moonstones whose mysterious aura fascinated me from a young age. And amber – I have lots of amber jewellery which I often wear to remind myself of how incredibly old our world was before we human infants tiptoed onto the stage. Glad to have brought a moonstone to you – now you need to treat yourself to a moonstone ring!

  2. I have a similar stone and it just drew me much like this one does. The quote from Blake is one of my favourites too. CarolexXx
