Moonstone is a natural gemstone in the feldspar family of minerals known for its blue flashes of color. The shimmering effect in the moonstone is called adularescence. Rainbow moonstone has a unique crystal structure that creates this optical phenomena by alternating layers of albite inclusions and layers of orthoclase. This creates a whitish-blue sheen of color as the light enters the stone and bounces back. Some moonstone will display tiny dots of rainbow colors in the stone when turned in the light. Moonstone can be found in many places around the world, with the most popular deposits in India and Sri Lanka.
Alexandrite is a pleochroic gemstone which means the stone exhibits a color change when viewed at different angles or under different lighting such as daylight and incandescent lighting. The pleochrism effect is caused by the way the gemstone absorbs rays of light.
There are two types of lab grown alexandrite: chrysoberyl and corundum. Our alexandrite jewelry collection is created with alexandrite lab corundum that has been infused with either chromium or vanadium to provide the color change. The stones will change from a dark purple to a violet-pink purple to a bluish purple. Some stone with have a touch of teal blue under daylight.
Alexandrite stones are said to help with self control and discipline, helping the wearer strive for excellence. Russian legend believes alexandrite stones promote good luck, fortune and love.
