Moonstone is one of the most remarkable gemstones available today.
It is known to exhibit a distinct sheen under certain lighting conditions.
In fact, its name is owed to the almost magical, bluish white shimmer it exhibits, which closely resembles that of the moon.
Moonstone was extremely popular about 100 years ago, during "Art Nouveau" cultural period.
For example, famous French Master-Goldsmith, René Lalique and many others at that time decorated most of their masterpieces with Moonstone. His pieces are rare and only found in museums or in well-guarded private collections.
Moonstone has been used in Roman jewelry for two thousand years, and even longer in the Orient. It has always been a sacred stone in India with a special significance for lovers, and is a traditional wedding gift there today.
