Moonstone gets its name from its similar appearance to the actual Moon which creates the tides and rhythms of Earth, as well as influencing our behaviors, emotions and spiritual growth. Moonstone is known for its calming and encouraging energy, reminding us to go with the natural rhythms of life.
Moonstone is a sodium potassium aluminium silicate of the feldspar group that exhibits a pearly and opalescent appearance. When light hits the stone it produces the phenomenon called adularescence. Adularescence is the metallic iridescence originating from below the surface of a stone, that occurs when light is reflected between layers of minerals. Adularescence can also be found in other feldspar minerals such as Labradorite.
