This stone also comes in rainbow, yellow, peach, grey, and blue. Moonstone can aid in telling the future, helping alleviate sleeping problems such as bad dreams and insomnia, and is even said to help activate the kundalini energy in women. A stone of insight, it is associated with the crown chakra. Moonstone strongly resembles crystal balls, and can also be used for scrying because of its sensitive and clear surface. The black lines of some pieces moonstone are said to help in healing relationships in general.
