What is a Moonstone?
A moonstone is a natural crystal from the Earth and is often set into jewelry to be worn. There are thin layers that make up this crystal, and when the light passes through these layers, the light scatters and reflect many different colors. The colors of moonstone are almost translucent and include an array of blue, yellow, green, purple, pink, white and grey. When these colors are produced from the light, it is called adularescence. The name moonstone represents the sheen glow of the moon when the sun is reflecting on it. Moonstone jewelry has been around for quite some time but became popular in the early 1900s. Moonstone jewelry is very common in our generation, and is even considered a birthstone for the month of June. The iridescent glow from moonstone jewelry is easy to take your breath away with movement and the presence of light.
Moonstone jewelry is usually set with a moonstone cabochon. A cabochon is the process of being shaped and polished. Usually, the form of a moonstone cabochon is round on one side, and flat on the other. The flat side makes the stone easy to set into jewelry, and the round top helps showcase the crystal.
