MORE ABOUT MOONSTONE
What is moonstone?
Moonstone is a variety of gemstone that’s commonly milky white with a blue, silver, or multicolored iridescent tint.
Moonstones can be transparent or semitransparent. More transparent moonstones are typically more valuable and higher in price.
The word moonstone is also sometimes used to refer to other varieties of feldspar, or, less technically, to any milky-colored gemstone.
Example: I have a moonstone ring that gives off a blue shine when it catches the light.
Where does moonstone come from?
The first records of the word moonstone come from around 1630. The word moon is used in the name of the stone due to its white color.
The iridescent tint of moonstone comes from its chemical makeup, a sodium and potassium aluminosilicate mixture. Moonstones are found in Sri Lanka, India, Australia, parts of North America, and other locations around the world.
