What kind of gemstone is moonstone?
The moonstone consists of little layers feldspar and the great brilliance is caused by the breaking of the light in the little layers. The smaller the layers the better the brilliance. When the feldspar got combined with sodium, the stone gets bluer. Pollution in the stone (other minerals were added to the feldspar in a natural way) causes the different colors. For instance, when iron occurs the moonstone will be more reddish.
Moonstone is a soft gemstone (6 on the scale of Moh’s) and has a mother of pearl or glass brilliance over the stone. It is a bit watery opaque gemstone with a silvery-white reflection (chatoyancy). And moves as a line across the surface when the light varies. It occurs in shades of white, peach, gray, blue and rainbow variety.
