Moonstones are among the world’s most beautiful gemstones. Like their evocative name’s sake, the moon, moonstones have a silvery light that seems to come from within. The sheen on moonstones is caused by the phenomenon of adularescence, akin to the moon being seen through water. It is not surprising that this beautiful gem also has a history of use as a talisman for fertility, love, protection, and sleep.
The quality of Barbara’s moonstone collection is evident in their colour, sheen and clarity. Moonstones come in a variety of colour, from greys through to yellows and pinks but the best moonstones have a vibrant blue sheen and perfect clarity. These are usually cut into domed cabochons to accentuate adularescence.
Barbara uses moonstones in many ways but particularly likes to contrast them with the brightness of diamonds. Moonstones particularly work well in Barbara’s most recent rock collection. Set in dark silver, with diamonds they almost evoke looking into the mystical starry sky.
