Blue moonstone (orthoclase) is from the feldspar family of minerals. Blue moonstone is white or clear and at times has a pearl-like color. Sparkling glimpses of blue can be seen, hence the name “blue moonstone.” Tiny albite crystals within the stone provide a shimmering glow known as adularescence. Moonstone was very popular early in the 20th century and was extensively used in Art Nouveau jewellery.
As a healing stone, it is said to enhance intuitive sensitivity, relieve anxiety and stress and reduce the tendency to over-react emotionally.
