Moonstone Gemstone is a type of mineral orthoclase called the feldspar group. When they are formed, orthoclase and the albite is separated in different alternating layers. Initially these two minerals, albite and orthoclase are intermingled. When light passes through these layers, the light is scattered in different directions and it produces a phenomenon which is called adularescence. Adularescence gives a glowing appearance to the surface of a gemstone as it is the light that billows across it. Apart from adularescence, Moonstone is also known to show the effect of a cat’s eye.
