These top quality 6mm round blue moonstone beads are more transparent than lower grades which really makes the blue adularescence pop. Adularescence is an optical phenomenon that occurs when light is reflected from crystals within the stone instead of off the surface.
These should not be confused with the gemstone called rainbow moonstone, which is a trade name for a species of labradorite. Blue moonstone is of the orthoclase species.
