I absolutely love the color combination of gemstones used to craft this exquisite necklace and earrings set. The round faceted beads of peach colored shimmering Moonstone and faceted ovals of smoldering Smoky Quartz are combined with tiny silver-filled round beads separating them in this spectacular piece of jewelry. A pair of matching earrings with hand-crafted sterling silver ear wires completes the set. Did you know that the Pantone fashion color for Spring 2016 is Peach Echo!
Moonstone comes in a variety of colors, ranging from colorless to gray, brown, yellow, pink and peach. The clarity can also range from transparent to translucent. It is used in India to foretell the future and is given to newly weds to help forecast their future together. Moonstone is also thought to help cope with stress by calming the mind and soothing the spirit. It is considered so effective that the gemstone is ground and used by ayurvedic doctors to cure anxiety. The gemstone is found in India, Sri Lanka and Burma. In the USA it is found in Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Smoky Quartz is the clear grey or brown variety of natural Quartz. Natural healers have long used it as a mood enhancer, it is recommended to dispel ones negative energy and depression. It is considered the gemstone for the Zodiac sign of Capricorn.
