Handmade Mexican Artisan Sterling Silver Bezel Set Moonstone & Garnet Drop Earrings.
Moonstone has a cool glowing appearance. When light falls between these thin, flat layers, it scatters in many directions, producing the phenomenon called adularescence. Adularescence is the light that appears to billow across a gemstone, giving its surface a glowing appearance.
