They have a strong energy that may help with the emergence of fresh or novel ideas.
They have a good action to stimulate your creativity as their vibration resonates within the sacral or navel chakra.
Like the lovely rainbow moonstone crystals they resonate within the highest chakras, and may assist with the development of psychic gifts.
These crystals are unusual, because although they look like they are colored black at first glance, when they are moved they have a lovely silver grey sheen.
The black stones are not as well known as the beautiful rainbow moonstone crystals, but are becoming more well known.
Since they were discovered are becoming more popular and are in wider use.
Many of these dark stones have peach lines through them, and like many peach colored stones they are associated with the sacral or navel chakra.
They also make a good connection within the base and earth chakras to stimulate grounding and give protection.
Most of the stones selling are tumble stones, and raw natural stone does not seem to be as prevalent.
The polished crystals bring out the unique colors of the stones, and you can buy beautiful polished carved pieces of the stone fairly easy.
Their mineral make-up is Orthoclase feldspar.
In some place it is confused with Larvikite (see image further down). Although some people think it is the same stone, it has a different mineral make-up.
This variety of Moonstone has many metaphysical properties in common with other colors of Moonstone.
Although it is black it looks quite different when you move the stone, as you see flashes of the lovely silvery grey color.
The energy of these both of the dark varieties connect you down to the earth.
They strongly resonate at the base chakra, which helps with grounding you spiritually.
They have many qualities in common with the Rainbow Moonstone. The darker moonstone also boosts coincidence and synchronicity to flow in your life.

Like the Rainbow moonstone, these darker colored stones also resonate within the throat chakra, third eye chakra and crown chakra, and assist you with developing psychic abilities.
Most pieces of this stone, including the piece shown above, also have peach color in the stone. This is also helpful to make a connection within the sacral chakra.
This chakras energy may be specifically helpful to aid women emotionally, may boost your creativity, and aid the birth of new ideas.
These stones have a number of useful healing attributes including helping you if you have electrical sensitivity.
They are said to block the effects of these devices and may be effective used in combination with other stones for electrical sensitivity.
If you are a person who reacts to mobile phones, wi-fi or the emanations from computers, it may benefit you to have a piece in your environment.
They are also said to be helpful healing stones for anyone with issues in the organs of the sacral chakra, as they resonate well there.
These organs include the female reproductive area, the kidneys, spleen, stomach and gut.
These stones are useful to stimulate an increase in coincidence and synchronicity.
If you would like to increase the level of this energy in your life you may like to use it with other stones that boost coincidences.
Stones that you could choose includes the lovely red Ruby, Lilac Lepidolite, Snowflake Obsidian or Malachite, but do check the list that is on the in-depth page (see link above), and see if you are intuitively guided to a different choice.
Many of these stones have obvious peachy colors within them, and this relates to their action to enhance your creativity.

If you have a sensitivity to any type of electromagnetic radiation, it may be beneficial to use these stones in combination with other crystals that are said to assist this problem.
Other stones that help the body to deal with electromagnetic sensitivity includes Aegirine, Shungite, Flint, Fulgurite, Black Tourmaline or Smokey Quartz.
You may choose to use it in combination with Larvikite which looks similar to this stone but is a titanium rich feldspar, so has a different mineral makeup.
These two stones also have different metaphysical properties, so make sure you get the right one.
