A Brief History:

Dreamy and ethereal, moonstone represent the natural power of the moon

Moonstone was first discovered in Mt. Adular, Switzerland and was named by the Roman natural historian Pliny. He recognized that the stone mimicked the phases of the moon with its ability to shimmer in different levels of brilliance when turned. Mark Henry focuses on only the highest quality rainbow moonstone from Southern India. Our stones are colorless by default but will contain a desirable blue sheen from within when exposed to different light sources.

Amazing Adularescence:

Mark Henry moonstone displays an attractive blue sheen light, which appears to float below its surface

Adularescence is the phenomenon defined by a light or glow that appears from within the gem. This glow is actually microscopic layers of feldspar inside the moonstone which fracture light and make it appear in different bursts of color. Our moonstone’s range from giving off a beautiful white to blue sheen. Mark Henry’s high quality moonstones tinted bluish hues will surprise you when you least expect it.

The Significance:

As the birthstone of June, a symbol of the moon, and one of the most interesting exotic gems, moonstone has so much to offer when it is left to its own devices and works its natural magic

Adored for its beautiful adularescence and quiet elegance, luminous moonstone embodies the metaphysical qualities of intuition, balance and strength. It also evokes romantic symbolism of the moon with its meaning of purity and love. Folklore suggests that exchanges of moonstone between partners when arguing can reinstate peace, rejuvenate love, and lower all remaining tension.
