Gemstone Folklore & Legends – Moonstone

According to Vedic (ancient Hindu) legend, a battle was fought between Lord Vishnu and Bali, the demon god. Vishnu destroyed Bali by breaking his body into many pieces. As each piece fell to the Earth, they were turned into many various jewels. It is said that the “chandrakanta”, or moonstone, was formed from the gleam of Bali’s eyes.
