Moonstones get their name from their opalescent sheen, which resembles a moon in a starry night sky. So Many people believe that this shimmery sheen is caused by the moon’s light reflecting off the stone.

The highest-quality moonstone crystals are found in deposits in India and Sri Lanka, though they’re found in deposits all over the world, including the United States, Mexico, Australia, Germany, and Tanzania. However, the rarest forms of moonstone crystals are found only in Sri Lanka.

You should always be careful handling the Moonstone because its properties include a hardness ranking between 6 and 6.5 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. This hardness ranking means moonstone crystals prone to breaking due to the cleavage within the stone.
