Moonstone Moonstone is the most well known variety of orthoclase feldspar. A colorless to yellowish gray, highly translucent to semitransparent stone that reflects light in a distinctive shimmering phenomenon known as adularescence. This lovely sheen is due to a combination of orthoclase and albite arranged in layers. Light reflected from the layers if they are not too thick is responsible for the unusual optical properties. Moonstone is fairly soft (6-6.5 on the Mohs scale). Moonstone comes from Sri Lanka, India, Madagascar, Burma, Tanzania and the USA.

My experience with gemselect was awesome so far. I had a few questions about their website and making orders and they replied quickly and were happy to help. I have not received the items I ordered yet as I just ordered them this morning. Although, I truly feel I am going to be a very happy customer once I do receive my items. Gemselect guarantees all their items and have a great return policy just incase. The have a vast selection of all kinds of stones and not to mention their prices are much better than some other websites. Thanks Gemselect I’ll be doing business here from now on!
Great selection. Love the many learning features like articles and gem information. Prices competitive for natural stones. I do miss not having a selection of lab-made stones, CZ’s, etc, which are useful when price and cost are factors.
