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
In the time of the Romans, moonstone was already a popular gemstone. It was believed that these stones were shaped by the moon's rays and made amulets and ornaments from them. Moonstone was also widely used in the Art Nouveau art movement.
