Moonstone is a variety of Orthoclase which is part of the Feldspar family. It can be milky white with pearly or bluish reflections, yellow, orange, gray, brown or even black. Not to be confused with Opalite which is simply tinted glass (false stone) or with the magnificent Peristerite ( white Labradorite) , marketed under the name "Rainbow Moonstone", but which does not has nothing to do mineralogically speaking with the real Moonstone.


Story :  Moonstone is also known as " Adulaire " , in reference to Mont Adule, in the Swiss Alps, where a huge deposit was discovered in 1801 by René-Just Haüy. 

It is also nicknamed  "Hecatolite", in reference to the goddess of Greek mythology Hecate, one of the three lunar goddesses with Artemis and Selene. Together they form “the Lunar Triad”. Moreover, the goddess Selene also gave her name to another mineral, whose milky reflections recall those of the Moon. This is the famous Selenite. Traces of Moonstone and its mystical powers can be found in many eras and civilizations. During Antiquity, it was considered an object of protection and divination. The Greeks used it to protect pregnant women throughout their pregnancy. He was also credited with the power to develop passion, fertility, as well as carnal pleasure. This reference to fertility was also present in the Middle East, since Moonstone was very often used to increase the chances of having a child. Among the Egyptians, this stone was a great symbol of protection. Once night fell, they wore it to protect themselves from nocturnal dangers and benefit from its powers linked to intuition. Even today, the Moonstone is particularly sacred in India.
