Shop Moonstone Cabochons gemstones for jewelry design or making, natural Moonstone Cabochons loose stones for sale online.
Popular for its pearly, silvery white opaqueness, Moonstone is a semi-precious gemstone that exhibits a moon-like sheen appearance. It is a Feldspar mineral that can also appear in colors other than white and colorless. These include grey, yellow, peach, brown, pink and blue, however they are more uncommon in the market. Moonstone’s moon-like sheen is emphasized with the presence of light, creating a splendid adularescent glow in the stone. In the jewelry market, although the stone hits 6 to 6.5 in the Mohs scale, it may easily break because of its cleavage. Thus, cutting and shaping it into cabochons or beads for any jewelry-making needs may require extra care.
Our shop offers high-quality, professionally-polished Moonstone cabochons in mostly pearly white hues. A few pieces in this collection have very conspicuous sheen characteristic, while a few appear as clear colorless crystals. Our Moonstone cabochons come in various shapes including oval, pear / teardrop, rectangle, triangle, and fancy shapes like diamond and slice, and in different sizes. Because this stone may easily break, our cabochons are perfect for making small jewelry pieces that do not often take hard blows like earrings and necklaces. They just need to be secured in bezels or wrapped in wires in order to protect the stone.
