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.
