Moonstone in Sterling Silver

This Moonstone pendant has a unique sterling silver setting. Reminds me a little of a dream catcher design with the small oval Moonstone gemstone in the center. The gemstone itself has many inclusions along side the blue flashes that are so well known in Moonstone.

Basic Information

Moonstone is sodium potassium aluminum silicate and a chatoyant member of the Feldspar family, closely related to Labradorite and Sunstone. It sits at a 6 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, and comes in many different colors. The unique flash (also known as schiller, or adularescence) effect within the stone is caused by light diffraction in a micro-structure of successive Feldspar layers.

Metaphysical

Moonstone is said to be the stone of new beginnings and divine feminine energy. It is thought to be connected to the moon, and shows a person that just like to moon has a cycle, so does life. Anything related to feminine problems (menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause) is also guided, and aided by Moonstone.

History

Ancient Romans believed that Moonstone was solidified rays of the moon, and both Romans and Greeks associated Moonstone with lunar deities.
