What is a Moonstone?

Moonstone is one of the popular gemstones in the recent times. Moonstones are gemstones that are produced from a very common mineral group called the Feldspar. Feldspar minerals are the most common group of minerals found on earth and about 45% of the earth’s crust is made with Feldspar.  The Moonstone is a variety of the Feldspar mineral group – (orthoclase and albite).  During the formation of the Moonstone these minerals tend to separate and alter their layers. Later, when light passes through these layers, the adularescence phenomenon takes place. Adularescence is nothing but the light that produces sheen in the gemstones. Most of the Blue moonstones are adularescent, while the rainbow moonstone is considered labradorescence because the light that scatters into the gemstones reflects with many colors like yellow, brown, pink and purple making it a rainbow.
