.... THIS IS A RAINBOW MOONSTONE CABOCHON

. Rainbow Moonstone: A Feldspar Flasher

Moonstone owes its name to the white, almost magical shimmer that resembles moonshine. Blue-whitish light glides over the surface when the stone is cut cabochon. Gemologists call this phenomena adularescence, which originates from the interior structure of the gemstone in scales or lamellas. Incoming rays of light are refracted inside the stone and scattered, creating a unique play of light, which makes Moonstone so special and coveted. Moonstone is the most well known potassium feldspar of the orthoclase species. A combination of orthoclase and albite arranged in layers cause the lovely sheen. Moonstone is fairly soft, 6-6.5 (Mohs scale) and sensitive to pressure.


At 6.0 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness, rainbow moonstone is a relatively soft gemstone that is hard to ignore. The soft, lunar colorings of the rainbow moonstone have awed and mesmerized many people from different cultures.
