These 6mm round white moonstone beads have a slight yellow color cast, varying degrees of translucency, and display the optical phenomenon known as adularescence (or schiller). This occurs when light is reflected off crystals from within the stone instead of the surface. The higher you go up in grade, the more intense the schiller. These moonstone beads are a great way to add some of the uniqueness offered by natural feldspar gemstones at a low cost.
Photographing white on white is very difficult, especially indoors. They do not look that yellow to the eye.
