Moonstone Round Beads 8mm White 45+ Beads D02030
Moonstone is the most well-known Gemstone variety of orthoclase feldspar, a potassium aluminium silicate, known historically as "adularia". Moonstone is known to exhibit a distinct sheen under certain lighting conditions, and it is this sheen which renders Moonstone one of the most remarkable Gemstones available today. In fact, its name is owed to the almost magical, blue and white shimmer it exhibits, which closely resembles that of the moon. Gemologists refer to the shimmering optical phenomena as 'adularescence'.
