Elastic Band Bracelet: Moonstone
Strung in Elastic Band ** 20 to 25 Beads ** Bead Size: 8 mm [approx.] ** Band Length: 18.5 cm | 7.25" [approx.] ** "Moonstone is typically a potassium aluminium silicate, with the chemical formula KAlSi3O8. ** The most common moonstone is of the mineral adularia. The plagioclase feldspar oligoclase also produces moonstone specimens. Its name is derived from a visual effect, or sheen, caused by light reflecting internally in the moonstone from layer inclusion of different feldspars. ** Moonstone's delicate beauty and its long heritage make it perhaps the most familiar gem quality member of the feldspar group. Moonstone is composed of two feldspar species, orthoclase and albite. The two species are intermingled. Then, as the newly formed mineral cools, the intergrowth of orthoclase and albite separates into stacked, alternating layers. When light falls between these thin, flat layers, it scatters in many directions producing the phenomenon called adularescence. ** Color: Can be numerous colors, including grey, white, pink, green and brown, but the most valuable are deep blue." - Source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moonstone_(gemstone)

"A gemstone or gem (also called a precious or semi-precious stone, a fine gem, or jewel) is a piece of mineral, which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry or other adornments. However certain rocks, (such as lapis lazuli) and organic materials (such as amber or jet) are not minerals, but are still used for jewelry, and are therefore often considered to be gemstones as well. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their lustre or other physical properties that have aesthetic value. Rarity is another characteristic that lends value to a gemstone." - Source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gemstone
