Moons & Stars
Moonstone is the name given to the member of a feldspar group of gemstones. They are remarkable for their chatoyancy or adularescence (Glow or inner light). This effect is in the form of a white shimmer, similar to moonshine, caused by structural anomalies within the crystal formation.
Fine moonstone is quite rare. It is found in various locales including the United States but the finest and most abundant sources are in Burma, Sri Lanka and India. Moonstone's body colour can range from colourless to white, grey, brown, yellow, orange, green, or peach. But its beauty is in its sheen, which can be white to deep flame blue.
Star stones are part of a special group of phenomenal gems in the world of gemstones. These stones exhibit special optical phenomena, including asterism (star effect), colour gradation (cat's eye effect) adularescence (flickering light) and iridescence (rainbow effect).
