Moonstone is a famous stone, regaled as sacred in India and prized for its strong sheen. Moonstone beads reflect light internally, giving the beads a shimmering, colorful effect. Moonstone beads are fairly hard, ranking a 6 on Moh’s scale, and are the birthstones of Gemini (May 21 - June 21) as well as the stone of the 13th anniversary. Some people believe that moonstone gemstones soothe and balance the emotions, as well as provide protection for women and babies.Moonstone beads would be beautiful with Swarovski crystals in a bridal set, or just for a special woman.
