I fell in love with these beads when we found them in 1979 in London during one of our very first buying trips there to the antique district on Portobello Road.
Each bead has an iridescent moon-glow shine when the light hits them just right which is why this term was coined. You can see this in the photographs.
Price is for 6 of these 12mm beads which I 100% guarantee to be vintage and purchased in London in 1979 but are undoubtedly much older - most likely from the 1960's as this is when moonglow was first produced.
They are wonderful when used to make earrings as they are light as a feather because they are made from resin.
I sold many of these vintage lucite or plastic beads through the Smithsonian Institution's museum shop and mail order catalog during the 1980's and they were also featured in trunk shows at Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue during this same time period.
You'll never see lucite beads like this nowadays at your neighborhood "gem show"!
