Gemstone with a Blue shine
Rainbow moonstone is a plagioclase feldspar and differs slightly from the normal moonstone which is an orthoclase (potassium feldspar). The difference is in the inclusions that provides the shine. In a rainbow moonstone it is caused just like the shine in a labradorite. In moonstone, albite inclusions are responsible for the shine. The dark inclusions in some of these rainbow moonstones are black tourmaline.
In the time of the Romans, moonstone was a popular gemstone. It was believed that these stones were formed by the moon rays. This stone was often used in amulets and ornaments. Moonstone was also widely used in the Art Nouveau art movement.
