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.

First, I wanted to say that you guys have a great selection gems, in all price ranges! Awesome site!! My son found a 6 piece set of blue topaz hearts that he wanted to get. I wanted to view all of the 6 piece sets or 10 piece sets. I recommend adding that ability to your filter.
