Moonstone is the most well-known gemstone of the feldspar group. Named for its glowing color sheen that resembles the moonlight, moonstone can belong to several different members of the feldspar group, especially orthoclase and oligoclase. Moonstone displays a unique play of color known as adularescence. This effect is in the form of a moving, floating light or sheen. Moonstone has been used in Roman jewelry for nearly two thousand years and even longer in the Orient.
All of our moonstones are unique and no two look exactly alike. Moonstone often forms with black granite, which creates the beautiful specks you see within these specimens. The beautiful, blue shine in these moonstones when exposed to the sunlight is stunning! They would look great on a nightstand or anywhere you'd like to keep them for decoration. Since they are smaller stones, they are easy to travel with and keep close in times when you need help connecting to the deeper mysteries of life or following your own intuition.
