MOONSTONE

MOONSTONE is a mineral from the feldspar group that displays a pearly and opalescent play of color caused by light diffraction within its crystal structure.

Moonstone has been used in jewelry for millennia, including ancient civilizations such as the Romans, who admired it because they believed it was born from solidified rays of the Moon. Deposits of Moonstone occur in Armenia, Australia, Austria, Mexico, Madagascar, Norway, Poland, India, Sri Lanka and the United States.
