Moonstone is the alternate for June's birthstone.
Moonstone owes its name to its mysterious shimmer that bears resemblance to the moon. It comes in a variety of colors, but is usually white or colorless with a bluish flicker.
A moonstone's clarity can range from transparent to translucent, and its silvery-blue iridescence is known as 'adularescence', particularly visible in the rainbow moonstone variety.
Traditionally from Sri Lanka, and steeped with mystery and magic, moonstone has been prized by many cultures for millennia. Romans believed the gem was formed from moonlight.
In India, moonstone is regarded as a magical and holy gemstone. It is often used as a 'dream stone', bringing the wearer beautiful visions at night.
Healers believe moonstone is soothing and can balance emotions.
