It is the stone of St. Valentine and faithful love, and signifies ecclesiastical dignity as the Bishop’s Stone. It carries the energy of fire and passion, creativity and spirituality, yet bears the logic of temperance and sobriety. [Fernie, 170-171][Mella, 73][Eason, 212]

It enhances self-acceptance in waiters and waitresses, and promotes sensitivity in psychologists and secretaries. [Mella, 129-133]

Peach Moonstone is particularly consoling to anyone who feels helpless because of weight problems, and should be worn to encourage one to love and value themselves for who they are, as is, and to assist in separating food from emotional needs. [Eason, 99]
