Gorgeous pairs of peach and grey moonstone ( adularia ) ready for the awesome earrings you have in mind!
Moonstone is a sodium potassium aluminium silicate of the feldspar group that displays a pearly and opalescent schiller.
An alternative name is hecatolite.
The name moonstone derives from the stone's characteristic visual effect, called adularescence (or schiller), which produces a milky, bluish interior light.
This effect is caused by light diffraction through alternating layers of orthoclast and albite within the stone.
The diffracted light varies from white to blue, depending on the thinness of the albite layers.
More technically, this micro-structure consists of regular exsolution layers (lamellae) of different alkali feldspars (orthoclase and sodium-rich plagioclase).
Polished moonstones often display chatoyancy ("cat's eye" effect), where a luminous streak appears through the stone.
Asterism is rare and produces four-legged stars.
We love to offer you a great service and what is greater than being able to select the piece you most resonate with.
It's a lot of hard work and time to hand select the pieces, take photos,measure weight but in the end your experience and satisfaction is worth.
Please Note: Every crystal is a unique one-off piece, therefore the size, shape and colour will vary although we hand select them to have a similar size.
Pictures are representative of current stock.
Please note that these are not calibrated (100%the same size and shape) cabochons so the left stone might vary a bit from the right stone in some of the pairs.
Also note that the backs are not high polished but semi matte.
Some might have a slight defect on the back making it not usable with open back, most are ok though.
Some dust from polishing might be present but it gets cleaned with a wet cloth easily.
All pairs are numbered and approximately measured as below:
-A stone for “new beginnings”, Moonstone is a stone of inner growth and strength.
-It soothes emotional instability and stress, and stabilises the emotions, providing calmness.
-Moonstone enhances intuition, promotes inspiration, success and good fortune in love and business matters.
