Moonstone (rainbow) Beads
Moonstone's radiant, translucent appearance is similar to that of the glow of the moon, hence the name Moonstone. Minerologists refer to this semi-precious stone as Adularia, as it was first discovered in the Adula Mountains in Switzerland. The glowing flashes of light that are seen in these rainbow moonstone beads are known as “adularescence”. This gemstone is usually whitish-blue (Rainbow Moonstone), but it can also be colorless, yellow, peach, gray, or even reddish (Multi Moonstone).
