I moved to Sun Peaks last October (2020), and although I have lived in Canada since 2012, I never had a real winter in my life... normally I run away to Mexico for 4 months. But last year everything was different... we decided not to leave the country and enjoy a Canadian winter instead! We were so fortunate to come to Sun Peals, one of the most beautiful winter destinations of Canada, for sure!!! So... as you can imagine, I am totally fascinated by all the snow that surrounds me, at the top of these amazing mountains!!! And, as a stone lover / addict / worshiper, for me snow reminds me of Moonstone!!!
Looking at the snow, seeing all those sparkling crystals, the reflections of rainbows, the refraction of the light... it all reminds me of the amazing Moonstone, and I feel the atonement with it’s properties. Winter, the pandemic… it all invites me to focus inside… and this is what Moonstone brings us:
