  1. Color: Moonstone typically exhibits a milky white to bluish-white color, often with a shimmering iridescence known as adularescence. This effect is caused by light scattering off microscopic layers of feldspar within the stone.

  2. Hardness: Moonstone has a hardness of around 6 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale. While this makes it relatively durable for jewelry, it is still susceptible to scratches and damage if not handled with care.

  3. Clarity: Moonstone often displays a semi-translucent to opaque appearance. Inclusions, such as mineral fractures and other imperfections, are common and can affect its clarity. However, these natural features are often embraced as part of the stone's character.

  4. Luster: Moonstone exhibits a pearly to vitreous luster, which contributes to its mystical appeal. When polished, it can have a soft sheen that enhances its allure.

  5. Density: The density of moonstone varies depending on its composition and quality, but it generally falls within the range of 2.55 to 2.59 g/cm³.

  6. Metaphysical Properties: Moonstone is often connected with the divine feminine energy and is believed to resonate with the cycles of the moon, influencing intuition, emotions, and inner growth. It is thought to promote emotional balance, calmness, and harmony. Some people use moonstone as a tool for meditation and stress relief.
