Moonstone comes from the Sanskrit words “kanta”, meaning loved, and “chandra”, meaning moon. Thus, together these expressions mean “beloved of the moon” referring directly to its mythical origin.
Its name also comes from the clarity of the moon, its splendor and beauty. This stone belongs to the feldspars group. Moonstone is colorless, but there are reflections that can range from white to blue, sometimes even to yellow highlights.
The reflections are mainly due to the structure of the moonstone which is crystalline. Moonstone corresponds to the candor of childhood.
