Many people might have their own unique associations with this stone, but Black Moonstone doesn’t have any more official special meanings.
For me? Since all of my artisan jewelry is inspired by nature, I see Black Moonstone, officially Larvikite, as a stone connected to the night sky and the cosmos. It looks a bit like you might imagine the black side of the moon or a nebula or galaxy in distant space.
So, even without a special meaning, Black Moonstone is still a special stone - perfect for handmade stone jewelry!
Right now, I primarily offer Black Moonstone in Sterling Silver earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. However, if you have an idea for Black Moonstone and don’t see something in my existing collection, you can always contact me to see if I can make a custom piece that suits your needs.
Yes. Black Moonstone is a relatively durable stone, so it’s suitable for everyday wear. However, it’s not as durable as some stones and gems like Emerald or Ruby, so it’s probably best to take off your Black Moonstone before doing household chores or any rough activities outside.
Black Moonstone has a lot of different colors inside it, but the primary color of the stone is usually black or a dark misty gray color. In the flashes of color inside the stone, you may see paler grays, blues, greens, or other colors depending on the angle, cut, and what light you’re using.
Black Moonstone isn’t actually Moonstone! The two stones look very similar, which is part of how Black Moonstone got its trade name since it’s easier for people to remember. However, my Black Moonstone’s official name is actually Larvikite.
For the sake of simplicity, though, you can use either term, and most people will know what you’re talking about. Larvikite isn’t entirely as well known as Black Moonstone, though!
