Moonstone Designer Pendant

Gorgeous moonstones of any size are getting very hard to find. I managed to get this one in Thailand. It is actually a bead with a tiny hole hidden beneath the swirled topper. The stone has both fire and some translucency and looks spectacular. I wrappe3d this beauty in square sterling silver wirewith a decorative topper and hidden bail. I photographed it in pale sunlight, hence the shadows. I felt, however, that showing the bluish fire would enhance the photo so the stone's natural beauty would show.

The pendant is petite, measuring just 1 7/8" from top of bail and is 7/8" wide.

Note: Moonstone is a feldspar mineral, a potassium aluminum silicate with a Mohs hardness of 6 to 6.5. It was named after its blue-white sheen which is caused by its lamellar structure. Moonstones are found in Sri lanka, Madagascar, Myanmar, Australia, India and the United States. It is considered a stone of mystery, a gem of the high priestess.
