Moonstone Jewels Inner Glow, Love and Lore
“i want to be
in love with you
the same way
i am in
love with the moon
with the light
out of its soul.”
I have long been intrigued with Moonstone. The way light seems to glow from within the gem is amazing. That inner glow is a result of the mineral combination of albite and orthoclase which, as it cools the minerals separate into alternating layers. When light hits these layers it is dispersed in all directions creating a glow.
The moonstone has been used in jewelry by many cultures and is held in high esteem. Believed by some to hold the moon itself and the power to foretell the future as well as a positive influence on your love life. Moonstone is the birthstone for June.
The moonstone in this 18k gold ring will show a flash of blue as you move it. I have paired it with an Owyhee blue opal from eastern Oregon.
