Glance at a well cut moonstone and you will see the scintillating shimmer, a glowing light floating just below the surface of the gem. We used the term 'well cut moonstone' and this is very important. To generate that amazing floating shimmer, the gem cutter needs to accurately orient the gem before the cutting process.Moonstone requires extreme gem cutting skills, cutting each piece can pose a challenge.

It is quite obvious that, any error in these parameters will render the final piece useless.
A few interesting beliefs and traditions related to moonstone, these are something that add to the excitement and thrill of wearing a moonstone ring. These beliefs have come down from centuries though, some of them are followed even today. A small technical fact about what exactly moonstone is composed of. Moonstone is a feldspar, it is formed by layers of feldspar and these layers have varying refractive indexes. When light enters the gem from the top, it seeps through the multiple layers and reflects (refracts) to varying degrees. This is what causes the soft glow that is seen in moonstone.
Through the centuries humans explained the gentle glow in moonstone, in their own interesting way. One of the popular folklore was that, the moonstone reflected the lunar phases of the moon. The idea was that, watching a moonstone could tell you the lunar phase of the moon at that point of time! We also hear about beliefs that, moonstone was formed from frozen moonlight. Seeing that the gem was always related in some possible way to the moon, it is no secret why the gem came to get its name.
