Feeling (attracted to the colour) yellow?


The colour yellow shines bright with optimism, happiness and positivity. Shades of AMUN RA's [Egyptian Sun God] golden yellow carry promises of a sunny future while our own creativity runs wild.


How lovely yellow is! It stands for the sun.
~Vincent Van Gogh
(post-Impressionist painter,
1853-1890)

Yellow Moonstone invokes inner vision while offering protective energy to shield from unwanted negative disturbances. As it adds mental focus it increases willpower & stamina. Empowerment for the wearer is amplified by a boost in creativity & courage.


— In celebration of self–empowerment

The only real valuable thing is intuition.
