Moonstone Bat Necklace

Moonstone is a birthstone for June, along with pearl and alexandrite. Since Moonstone looks a lot like the moonshine, ancient Romans believed that it was formed from moonlight.
According to Hindu mythology, moonstone is made of solidified moonbeams. Many other cultures also associate this gem with moonlight, and it’s easy to see why. Its internal structure scatters the light that strikes it, creating a phenomenon known as adularescence. The visual effect is reminiscent of the full moon shining through a veil of thin, high clouds.
Please be aware that due to differences in monitor settings, color may vary slightly.
