A ghostly sheen moves under the surface of this feldspar, like moonlight glowing in water.
Since earliest times, Moonstone has been a tangible connection to the magic of the moon – an amulet of protection for travelers, a gift of lovers for passion, a channel for prophecy, and a path to wisdom.
Why we love this gemstone
Rare in top qualities, this etherial gem derives from one of the earth’s most common minerals.
Stacked layers of orthoclase and albite diffract light, creating moonstone’s adularescence.
Besides adularescence, moonstone sometimes also shows a cat’s-eye effect.
