Blue moonstone is a phenomenal gem i.e., a gem that displays an optical phenomenon, in this case the adularescence. It is a gem from the feldspar group and is composed of layers of albite – potassium rich aluminum 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.
In the case of Blue Moonstone, the blue schiller is produced and the phenomenon is brought out beautifully when the gem is fashioned like a cabochon.
Blue Moonstone is a very popular healing gem for it is believed to boost fertility as well as correct the hormonal imbalances – this is a gem that was used by the ancients to treat several maladies – especially in the female individuals.
