Shining with the light of your own personal rainbow, June’s birthstone is a magical addition to any ensemble. Along with Labradorite (it’s cousin in the gemstone world). Moonstone is a mineral in the Feldspar family which gives it such a unique and mesmerising opalescent shimmer. Deposits have been found all across the world including Norway, India and high in the Austrian Alps.
The name “Moonstone” was originally coined by the ancient Romans who believed it was formed from solidified moon rays, sent to Earth by the Gods. It is the perfect gem for new beginnings, inspiring feelings of hope and bringing a little ancient wisdom into modern life.
