    The most unique trait of moonstones is something called adularescence - the optical phenomenon that causes the extraordinary glow on their surface. The light moves across the gem, creating the visual effect reminiscent of the full moon shining through a veil of thin clouds - hence the crystal’s name.

    This breath-taking gem has always been held in very high esteem in the East. In India, it is considered to be a sacred stone - it is believed to have been embedded in the forehead of Ganesh, the four-handed god of the moon. According to Hindu mythology, moonstone was made from moonbeams and could bestow gifts of prophecy and clairvoyance to the wearer. It was also used in a very peculiar way to invite wisdom into one’s life - by placing the stone in the mouth during the full moon.
