0.95 carat Moonstone

This beautiful Moonstone comes from East Africa, not the actual moon, but it's named for the glowing blue sheen across its surface that resembles moonlight. This phenomenon is called adularescence.

 

I faceted the moonstone, and am glad I did, the large table is perfect for displaying the blue sheen. I chose the design “Omni-Oval” written by Robert Strickland.

 

This stone doesn't have any inclusions but as with a large portion of Moonstones it is opaque, making the stone look sleepy. I personally prefer this over the clear Moonstones as it adds to its glowing appearance.

 

Care should be taken with moonstone as it is a slightly softer stone at 6-6.5 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, and would be best suited for a necklace though a ring is possible.
