Moonstone (also known as the wishing stone)[1] is a gemstone of medium value.

Description

Moonstones are a milky colour and shine very brightly, almost as though they are a source of their own light. They are a useful potion ingredient; powdered moonstones are used as an ingredient for the Draught of Peace[2] and in several Love Potions.[3] Powdered Moonstone is also an ingredient in Potion No. 86 which was likely an experimental potion.[4]

History

In 1995, Severus Snape forced Harry Potter to write twelve inches of parchment on the properties of Moonstone and its usage in Potion-making.[2] Moonstones were also known to be among the gems set into Muriel's tiara.[5]
