MOONSTONE

Used in jewellery for thousands of years, Moonstone is the birthstone for June and has a hardness of 6. Its captivating schiller is known as adularescence which is due to light reflecting from layers within the gem. Translucent to transparent gems with a blue schiller are more valuable than the more opaque milky gems. It is sometimes seen in orange, green and grey tones, and occasionally Moonstone displays a cat’s eye effect known as chatoyancy.
