Moonstone

 Moonstone is one of the modern June birthstones and an accepted gem for the 13th wedding anniversary.
Moonstone belongs to the large mineral family of feldspars. It is an opalescent stone which can range from colorless to blue, peach, green, pink, yellow, brown or gray with a silvery sheen. This iridescence is known as schiller but in moonstone it is called adularescence. Clarity ranges from transparent to translucent.











Rainbow moonstone is milky white with a rainbow colored sheen. Moonstone is the most valuable form of feldspar and is composed of albite, which gives it the bluish sheen, and orthoclase feldspar.
Moonstone is found in Brazil, Germany, India, Madagascar, Mexico, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and the United States.
