We’ve all had the feeling that something’s about to happen or that we should do something. Call it your spidey-sense, or call it what it is – intuition.
Listening to our intuition is great. But how often do we say, “I knew I should have …” in hindsight? Here are a few sparkly gems that will help clear your head and enhance your intuition. Best of all, their colors are perfect for a any season!

Sunstone is a stone of abundance, personal power, and leadership. Once we let its energy shine through cloudy thoughts, we are unstoppable!
How to identify: pale orange to deep orange. It shimmery and sparkly (depending on its origin), and ranges from transparent to opaque. There are two types of sunstone. The shimmery type comes from hematite inclusions generally mined in India. The sparkly type comes from copper inclusions found in Oregon.
Sunstone is appropriately named for its sparkling warm light. We wear it for its connection to light to strengthen the positivity in our lives. Sunstone has a bright, joyful energy that helps lighten dark moods and heavy feelings. Additionally, it gently removes the energy-draining “hooks” people sometimes attach to us. It also replaces self-doubt and fear with positive thoughts and optimism. This encourages feelings of self-worth and self-confidence. Sunstone’s sparkling energy stimulates motivation and positive action. It’s no wonder that whenever I make a piece of jewelry with Sunstone, I hum Johnny Nash’s song “I Can See Clearly Now.”
Check out these 8 ways to further boost mental power and reduce stress.
You can also use Moonstone as a stone of intuition, self-discovery, and insight. With Moonstone, we take action, and find our groove in new cycles to experience success.
How to identify: white, silvery gray, blue, beige-brown, light orange to peach, clear. Most Moonstones are lustrous. Rainbow Moonstone can be cloudy to translucent with colorful internal flashes of light called opalescence.
Moonstone is associated with feminine energy. It is the yin to Sunstone’s yang association with masculine energy. However, both gemstones work together harmoniously and their energies are beneficial to everyone, regardless of gender identity.

Just like the cycles of the moon, Moonstone encourages us to tune in to the cycles of our lives. Therefore, its soothing energy can enhance our emotional stability and reduce stress with each new cycle.
Labradorite helps strengthen our intuition and bolster our trust in ourselves, while stimulating our enthusiasm and creativity.
How to identify: silvery gray, blue, or green. Labradorite can be translucent to lustrously clouded, with a spectrum of colorful flashing light called labradorescence.
Labradorite makes you say oooh and ahhh because its inner lights flash playfully from unexpected angles. It is called a stone of transformation, but its healing energies derive from its ability to protect the wearer. In addition, Labradorite protects others from tapping in to our personal energy and draining us–especially during the cycles of transformation.
