Its name is owed to the almost magical, bluish-white shimmer it exhibits, which closely resembles that of the moon. Gemologists refer to the shimmering optical phenomena as 'adularescence'.
The most important moonstone deposits are from Sri Lanka and India. Other notable sources include Australia, Brazil, Germany, India, Myanmar (Burma), Madagascar. Colors vary from whitish blue to blue sheen.
Sri Lanka's moonstones with a pale blue sheen on a near-transparent body are considered most valuable.Most are small and the rare large Gems are most valuable.
