I love this moonstone. I literally could not put it down once I spotted it because I knew it would make a stunning necklace.
This elegant, one of a kind necklace features a stunning silver moonstone cabochon embraced by a decorative silver boarder. This elegant teardrop is suspended by a silky 18 inch sterling silver snake chain.
This extraordinary statement pendant measures approximately 1.1 inches long. The luxurious silver moonstone cabochon measures 7/8 of an inch long by 1/2 inch wide.
About the Stone: Moonstone is a feldspar mineral found in rich deposits in Burma, Madagascar, Australia, India, and the United States. Moonstone occurs in three main colors; white, peach, and silver.
Moonstone was named for the milky iridescence that plays on the stone's surface, that resembles moonlight. Moonstone was highly prized by ancient Romans who believed that the stone was magically formed out of moonlight. In fact, Roman jewelry with moonstones have been found which date back to 100 A.D.
Moonstone is a birthstone for the month of June and a traditional gift for the 13th wedding anniversary. Moonstone evokes patience for its wearer. It reminds us that all things happen in their own time, and that we must have patience as we walk our spiritual path.
Silver moonstone also carries the energies of the new moon, where all things exists as potential. This reminds us that all things are possible if we put that first foot forward to begin.
