Moonstone is in the feldspar group that displays a pearly and opalescent schiller. Schiller is produced because of light interference because the light needs to weave its way through the layers with different optical properties. The best moonstone has a blue sheen, perfect clarity, and a colorless body color.

Moonstone has been used in jewelry for millennia, including ancient civilizations. The Romans admired moonstone, as they believed it was derived from solidified rays of the Moon. Deposits of moonstone occur in Armenia, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Mexico, Madagascar, Myanmar, Norway, Poland, India, Sri Lanka and the United States.

Moonstone is the state gemstone of Florida.

Hardness 6-6.5

This is a natural stone that has had no treatment other than cutting, drilling, and polishing.

The source of these beads is Brazil and India and they are cut, drilled and polished in China.

    Not as transparent as it could be, but it will do.

    hard to tell it is moonstone, but it does have some sparkle.
