Feeling (attracted to the colour) white? 


MILKY WAY draws in the purity of white light as a reminder to accept that, no matter how dark the night, new beginnings are always the way of the world.


We shall set down white for the representative of light, without which no
colour can be seen; yellow for the earth;
green for water; blue for air;
red for fire; & black for total darkness.
~Leonardo Da Vinci
(Italian Renaissance polymath,
1452-1519)

Rainbow Moonstone is a symbol for new beginnings. A stone of inner strength & growth it enhances the wearer’s intuition, instils inspiration, success & good fortune in love & business matters. It calms anxiety & stabilises the nerves inviting surrender all around.


— Truce or dare you embrace surrender?

Humility of Milky Way


The energy of Humility resonates with Rainbow Moonstone forming a gentle merging of ancient wisdoms & new beginnings through intuition & light. Allow the pure white opacity of Milky Way to nurture you softly & inspire your very altruistic self in the know that these are the ways of the world.


A man wrapped up in himself makes
a very small bundle.

1706-1790)
