Moonstone Teardrop Pendant

Here's a lovely blue fire moonstone in a curved teardrop shape. The stone is thick and has a high polish on its domed surface. I wrapped it in six strands of 22 gauge sterling silver wire, then added my signature topper to keep the focus on the stone. Note: there are striations in a diagonal pattern along the surface of the stone which is quite common in feldspar type stones. One (the second from the botton) is a healed fracture that in no way diminishes the beauty of the piece, but in giving an honest description, I felt it helpful to mention.

The pendant is petite, measuring just 1 5/8" from top of bail and is just over 5/8" 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.
