Chapter II. Grey Moonstone.

The Witching Hour is an antiquated phrase ( going back possibly as far as 1535 ) representing the hour of night when magic, witchery, ghosts, and other 'supernatural' phenomena are at their most potent. In this way, it represents a kind of nightly 'thinning of the veil', when the membrane between our world and 'the other world' are most thin. There has been historical arguments over when this hour exactly occurs, with some people believing it to be between Midnight and 1am, others believing it to be between 3am and 4am. The 3-4am time period has also been said to correlate to when our brain activity is more skewed to creative thinking. With these ideas in mind, this strand can be used as a talisman to assist in creative/magical energy/states of being. 

Additionally, The Witching Hour also refers to a time when we are in REM sleep and can become subject to intense night disturbances such as visits from the shadow people/ the Old Hag, sleep paralysis, sleepwalking and other sleep disruptions that can feel supernatural. As someone who has experienced some of these intense experiences, the secondary idea of this strand is to be a protection from this time of night, as well as to be a balm should you awaken in a frightful state. 


Grey Moonstone:

Grey moonstone shares many of the same metaphysical properties as the rest of the moonstone family. It is closely tied to the moon, with some cultures believing the stone is solidified moon rays, while others think of them as embodiments of the moon's tears. Acting as a kind of Psychic armor, it is thought to protect its wearer from not only dark nights, but dark times; it helps sooth grief, loss, and other emotional turbulence. 

Moonstone is also known for its powerful psychic abilities. Used to protect empaths & sensitives from absorbing other people's emotions, it is known to be used during meditation for connecting to ones inner selves. As a romantic stone, it is known to strengthen the bonds between lovers when given as gifts, especially during the full moon. 

These beads range in color but are mostly a medium grey tone with flashes and shimmers of silvery white. As a natural stone, clarity and color varies; each bead has been hand selected for its quality.


Onyx is best known for being a natural stone that acts as a kind of 'psychic armor' against the negativity of others. It is also used to sooth grief and heartbreak. It's a wonderful grounding stone and stone of self mastery, enabling its wearers to have mental and spiritual focus.


Spinel is a potent stone for healing and protection: working to help clear intense emotions such as anger and rage, it imbues its wearer with a sense of calm. It is also used to heal the physical body and has powerful metaphysical qualities, helping its wearer to feel strong, assisting with perseverance, especially when dealing with issues from the past that have become difficult to overcome. Much like Onyx, it also helps repel negativity from others.

This strand measures approximately 26.5 inches in length including the clasp and features grey moonstone, Onyx star cut beads, glittering tiny black Spinel, sterling silver 'pearls' and victorian mourning jacket beads. At its closure is our Hourglass Clasp cast in sterling silver, hand oxidized and finished to achieve our signature shade of stormy gray. 

This 'Opera Length' makes it ideal for wearing doubled or tripled up. Designed to compliment other jewels in the Mourning/Ritual bead line it also layers beautifully with other BloodMilk necklaces.
