Description

Moonstone Smoky ~ Square Cabochon Natural Smokey Gray Gemstone Designer Cabochon Certified

The possibilities for this gem are endless! What will you use it for? Wire wrapping? A pendant, maybe? A ring? Or a bezel setting? Hhmmmmm...

This gemstone is surrounded by a good deal of mystique and magic. In many cultures, for example in India, it is regarded as a holy, magical gemstone. In India, moonstones are also regarded as 'dream stones' which bring the wearer beautiful visions at night. In Arabic countries, women often wear moonstones sewn out of sight into their garments, for in their cultures the moonstone is a symbol of fertility. Medicinally moonstone has been used as a treatment for women's menstrual problems.

Moonstone is a variety of the feldspar-group mineral orthoclase. During formation, orthoclase and albite separate into alternating layers. When light falls between these thin layers it is scattered producing the phenomenon called adularescence. Adularescence is the light that appears to billow across a gem. Other feldspar minerals can also show adularescence including labradorite and sanidine. Moonstones occur in a wide range of colors; white, pink, brown, gray, green, orange, yellowish and sometimes colorless. Moonstone’s name is derived from the fact that it has a pearly "moon-like" luster (adularescence).

The moonstone symbolizes our being in its entirety. With its soft shimmer, it strengthens our emotional and subconscious aspects. The associations connected with that make it a "lovers' stone", evoking tender feelings and safeguarding the true joys of love. It is also said that wearing a moonstone strengthens our intuition and our capacity to understand.
