I lightly polish my vintage silver as some people like the aged patina. If you want me to polish it before shipping, just let me know! I am not an expert on vintage jewelry, but I do buy and sell what I love! Since these items are vintage, they may have a wonderful aged patina and are not meant or expected to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
Moonstone is the opalescent variety of Orthoclase, which is an alkai feldspar, with a blue or white sheen, referred to as a "schiller", rather like the shine of the moon. This is created by the reflection of light from the internal structure of thin albite layers giving off the blue color and thicker layers feldspar producing the white shade.
Healing Properties: Since it is a stone of love and fertility, in history it was often used for a token of eternal love or for a wedding gift.
Some people believe that the moonstone is linked to the moon itself, focusing on love, fertility, good fortune and protection during dark times.
