Moonstone is a variety of feldspar mineral. When cut as a cabochon this stone exhibits a flash of color known as the Schiller Effect. This phenomenon is caused by structural anomalies within the crystal formation. Moonstone has been used in jewelry by Ancient Greeks and Romans who associated the stone's color with the light of the moon. Most moonstone comes from India and Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan moonstone is most famous for its attractive blue colored material, but blue moonstone is becoming increasingly rare. India is known for producing fine rainbow moonstone. Moonstone is found in many colors including gray, peach, and white.
