About MoonstoneHide

A popular name for pearly and opalescent microcline although some moonstone could be orthoclase, but data are few. Frequently improperly applied to peristerite variety of plagioclase. Antiperthite and anorthoclase may show schiller similar to moonstone and have been lumped together with true moonstone due to lack of a less generic name.

Visit gemdat.org for gemological information about Moonstone.
