Moonstone 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 . As these minerals have different reflective indexes 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 is regarded by many cultures as the stone of femininity and is the birthstone for Cancerians. It may improve intuition and creativity provide a calming effect .
