Moonstone is a gemstone that has been used in jewelry for centuries. Its unique iridescent sheen resembles the light of the moon, hence its name. Moonstone is composed of two minerals: feldspar and quartz.
Moonstone is believed to have a number of mystical properties, including the ability to promote success, good fortune, and wisdom. It is also said to promote peace, harmony, and balance.
Moonstone is available in a range of colors, from white to yellow to pink. Moonstone has a Mohs hardness rating of 6-6.5 so it's relatively hard but care should be taken against abrasions.
When caring for moonstone jewelry, it is important to avoid exposing it to chemicals or cleaners that could damage the iridescent surface.
