Moonstone is the name given to a group of Feldspars and can range in color from white/pale cream through to peach/pink, green, and grey/black. There is a beautiful variety known as Rainbow Moonstone which exhibits stunning blue-toned hues.
While the moonstones colors can be delightful, very feminine, and extremely attractive, it is its attribute of adularescence that most consumers find attractive. Adularescence is an attribute that is familiar with high-quality moonstones. Moonstones have crystalline structures within them. When light is shined upon these stones, certain light waves bounce around within the crystalline structure and create either a shimmering effect or a wonderful aura. This effect makes the stone look very magical and mystical.
Because the stone can be found in larger pieces, many stones can be quite larger than normal gems and while the moonstone is usually only a few inches in size at the very most to accentuate the crystalline structure and aura, it is mined in much bigger chunks than most other gemstones.
While the stone that Moonstone comes from is located throughout the world, the most likely sources of Moonstone are Sri Lanka, India, Tanzania, Brazil, Germany, Mexico, and the United States.
