Characteristics and Types of Moonstone - The June Birthstone


Moonstone is a type of feldspar mineral, specifically a member of the orthoclase feldspar group. The unique adularescence effect that gives moonstone its mesmerizing glow is the result of the interaction between light and the layers of feldspar within the stone. As light passes through these layers, it is scattered, creating the shimmering, pearlescent effect that is so characteristic of Moonstone.


The colour of Moonstone can vary widely, ranging from pure white to shades of peach, pink, grey, and blue. The most prized and valuable moonstone is known as "rainbow moonstone," which displays a captivating play of colours that includes blue, white, and silver hues. Other types of moonstone include "blue moonstone," which exhibits a more pronounced blue sheen, and "white moonstone," which is a pure, pristine white in colour.


In terms of quality, Moonstone is graded based on the intensity and clarity of its adularescence. Stones with a strong, well-defined play of colour and a smooth, even sheen are considered the most valuable. Moonstone can also be found in a range of sizes, from small, delicate cabochons to larger, statement-making pieces. The size and shape of the moonstone can also impact its value, with larger, well-proportioned stones typically commanding higher prices.
