Raw Natural Moonstone Silver Pendant with Chain

  • £3890

Two unusual Moonstone gemstones which display the natural unpolished beauty of the stones. All gemstones begin life as an uncut piece and we have been asked if we can supply some natural looking pieces , so here they are. The moonstones have been hand set in silver . The reverse of the pendants is polished flat but the front displays the natural gemstone which is a little proud of the setting as shown in the side view image . The light then catches the Moonstones in delicate white blue hues. 

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. 

Hindus 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 .

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 .
