What are Moonstones and where do they come from?
The mystical stone belongs to the large mineral family of feldspars, which provide almost two thirds of all stones on our Earth. In the case of Moonstone, we are looking at the feldspar variety called "adularia" a silicate of potassium aluminium in gemstone quality, which is also found in the European Alps near the Adula-group - thus the name "adularia". Another synonym for Moonstone is "Selenite", according to the Greek goddess of the moon, Selene.
When uncut, Moonstones look quite boring and make it difficult to discern their attractiveness: the mysterious play of light. It will only be brought out by the cutter's expertise and skills. Classical Moonstones are always cut as cabochons. Here the appropriate height of the stone is essential. The cutter must also bear in mind to locate the crystal axis exactly in the zenith of the stone, because only then the desired effect of light play will be achieved.
