Why buy star moonstone quartz gemstones?

Moonstone owes its name to the white, almost magical shimmer that resembles moonshine. Blue-whitish light glides over the surface when the stone is cut en cabochon. Gemologists call this phenomena adularescence, which originates from the interior structure of the gemstone in scales or lamellas. Incoming rays of light are refracted inside the stone and scattered, creating a unique play of light, which makes moonstone so special and coveted.

Moonstone is the most well known potassium feldspar of the orthoclase species. A combination of orthoclase and albite arranged in layers cause the lovely sheen. Star moonstone is another excellent variety of moonstone. It comes in honey-colored, peach and green and exhibits a stunning cat's eye or four-rayed star effect together with its mystical sheen and glow. Star moonstones are rare but still sold at affordable prices.

What are some of the properties of star moonstone gemstones?

Moonstone is fairly soft, 6-6.5 on the Mohs scale, and is sensitive to pressure. It qualifies for lovely pendants or brooches only. In Arab countries women reportedly sew moonstone into their garments because it's considered a symbol of fertility.

What are good ways to use star moonstone gemstones?

I would recommend GEMSELECT based upon the variety of gems. Gems that i didn't expect to even be apart of the selection and it gave me more options. Options in which played a key role in finding the right gem. Its always good to have options especially when trying to formulate a good piece of art work that has uniqueness. Which ultimately captures costumers eye appeal.

Gemselect is o.k the prices are pretty good, but the shipping prices really suck, one time I order from them and order got lost or never came, but they were good about fixing the problem and rectifying the situation, the stones and good, and the ones that come in the mail, look just as pictured on the website, or all it's not bad and its were I go to get my stones.
