What is Moonstone?
Moonstone is an orthoclase with albite inclusions from the feldspar group that have formed thin layers during cooling. It is these layers that refract the light and give the stone its typical shine. Pure moonstone is white, but can also be green, blue, red or even black due to a mix with other minerals
Moonstone was already a popular gemstone in Roman times. These stones were believed to have been formed by the moon's rays and turned them into amulets and ornaments. Moonstone was also widely used in the Art Nouveau art movement.
