Moonstone is in the feldspar group that displays a pearly and opalescent schiller. Schiller is produced because of light interference because the light needs to weave its way through the layers with different optical properties. The best moonstone has a blue sheen, perfect clarity, and a colorless body color.  But moonstone body colors can vary widely. They can be green, yellow to brown, peach, or gray to nearly black. 

Moonstone has been used in jewelry for millennia, including ancient civilizations. The Romans admired moonstone, as they believed it was derived from solidified rays of the Moon. Deposits of moonstone occur in Armenia, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Mexico, Madagascar, Myanmar, Norway, Poland, India, Sri Lanka and the United States.
