    What is Adularescence?

    Adularescence is special optical phenomena exhibited by Blue Moonstone.  Blue Moonstone exhibits Blue schiller or adularia/ Blue Lustre. The schiller is produced because of light interference caused by the light having to weave its way through the layers with slightly different optical properties.

    Cause of Adularescence in Blue Moonstone

    Blue Moonstone is a gem from the feldspar group and is composed of layers of albite – potassium rich aluminium silicate and orthoclase – sodium rich aluminum silicate. The schiller is produced because of light interference caused by the light having to weave its way through the layers with slightly different optical properties. The adularescence is caused by scattered light passing through the exsolution lamellae that act as scattering centres, creating a bluish hue/ lustre.

    What is Blue Moonstone used for

    The Blue Moonstone has many benefits. Primarily in Vedic Astrology it is a superior alternative/ Upratna to be used instead of Natural Pearl for harnessing the energies of the moon.
