Many cultures associate this gem with moonlight, and it’s easy to see why! Moonstone is a beautiful gem variety of feldspar that is naturally composed of alternating layers. When light falls between these thin layers it is scattered, producing the phenomenon called adularescence. - the bluish light that appears to billow across the gem. The visual effect is reminiscent of the full moon shining through a veil of thin, high clouds. Typically, this gem is cut en cabochon; but this pretty specimen is fully faceted!
