Dream catchers were traditionally made by native american cultures using a willow hoop with a woven net or web and included sacred items such as feathers or beads. They were hung over babies cribs for protection and it was also believed that dream catchers would protect babies and children from nightmares by trapping them in their webs while dreams would flow right through.

About the stone
Moonstone is the birthstone for June and the gem associated with the 3rd wedding anniversary.
Moonstone is the most valuable stone from the feldspar group. A billowy blue colour becomes visible when the stone is rotated in front of a light source. This effect, called adularescence, is caused by the inter growth of another feldspar in oriented positions within the main mass of the moonstone. Common locations where moonstone deposits can be found include Sri Lanka, Brazil, Madagascar, India, Germany, Tanzania, Mexico, Australia, and the United States. The rarest forms come from Sri Lanka.
Moonstone is known as the stone of new beginnings. It has been used in jewellery for thousands of years, including ancient civilizations. The Romans believed that moonstone was born from solidified rays of the moon. In ancient times, moonstone was said to be able to elicit deep passion between lovers. It was also thought to give the wearer the ability to predict the future and good fortune.
Moonstone is thought to be a very calming stone. It’s deeply feminine and is believed to help stabilize hormones. It enhances intuition, promotes inspiration, success and good fortune in love and business matters. It’s a very protective stone especially for travelers who travel at night or upon water.
