A beautiful teardrop shaped Moonstone delicated handcrafted in silver and complete with an 18 inch silver chain . The Moonstone exhibits delicate flashes of pale blue in the light , especially in sunlight and is encased in swirls of silver.

Monstone is an Orthoclase Feldspar formed from cooling magmas  deep within the Earth. As the magmas cooled at differing speeds so thin layers of the minerals Albite and Orthoclase formed . These minerals have different reflective indexes so light entering the stone is scattered  and diffused in many directions creating the wonderful changes in colour, known as adularescence.

Hindu and Roman myths suggested that moonbeams were captured and frozen in Moonstones, hence its magical appearance. It was worn as an amulet worn by ancient travellers . Moonstones are a traditional wedding gift in many parts of India.
