We have seen a lot of unique and distinct gemstones in our life and often relate these gemstones with the different things we admire in our day to day life! I know each one of us admire these beautiful gemstones in our life, but some gemstones are so alluring and attractive that we cannot resist ourselves from continuously looking at them! We have researched some effulgent pieces of gemstone to gratify your craving for jewelries, so if you are drawn to moon then you will definitely love the gemstones which we are about to discuss below. The Moon and many of its spiritual beings are historically associated with silver. The metal resembles both moonlight and water. If it tarnishes black, it can be restored by polishing, similar to the changing phases of the Moon. All metals are luxury goods, the shiny surfaces of gemstones remind people of the light emitted by certain celestial bodies because gold does not tarnish; it is associated with the consistent appearance of the Sun! Now, talking about the moon let us not waste time and head towards the collection of moon glances gemstones:
A moonstone is one of the most unique and distinct gemstone of all, Moonstone is composed of two feldspar species, orthoclase and albite. The two species are intermingled. Then, as the newly formed mineral cools, the intergrowth of orthoclase and albite separates into stacked, alternating layers. When light falls between these thin, flat layers, it scatters in many directions producing the phenomenon called adularescence.
At first glance this stone might look dark to you, because this stone is highly mystical and spiritual stone and is often used to raise consciousness. It is also a stone of protection, and holds esoteric wisdom. Labradorite is iridescent and captures the light in exciting and stimulating ways which is why it is so useful in spirit work and opening up to your imagination.
Cat’s Eye Chrysoberyl
Cat’s Eye Chrysoberyl is a rare form of Chrysoberyl and one of the few gemstones that displays the rare phenomenon known as chatoyancy or cat’s eye. Chatoyancy is caused by fiber-like inclusions in the stone that reflect light in a single, vivid stripe down the center. Cat’s Eye Chrysoberyl comes in a large variety of colors, but to me, the most reminiscent of the moon is either the blue, orange, or gray variety.
Opal ranges from clear through white, gray, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, magenta, rose, pink, slate, olive, brown, and black. Of these hues, the black opals are the most rare, whereas white and greens are the most common. Opals vary in optical density from opaque to semitransparent.
Mother of Pearl
This astounding gemstone is a smooth shining iridescent substance forming the inner layer of the shell of some molluscs, especially oysters and abalones, used in ornamentation. Mother of pearl actually isn’t a pearl at all, but instead is composed of minerals that line the inner layer of certain mollusks’ shells. When the mollusk secretes a substance known as nacre, it creates an iridescent, strong coating on its shell that has been used in jewelry for centuries.
