Moonstone is a jewel stone. This precious stone was loved a hundred years ago in the era of "Art Nouveau". The French jeweler René Lalique used it in his products, which today can only be seen in museums and private collections.
When buying decorations with moonstone, you may encounter a difference in prices. The price is determined by the intensity of the color, the size and transparency of the stone. Excellent blue moonstones have an incredible three-dimensional color depth, discernible with the rotation of the stone. Such specimens are highly appreciated by collectors because of their rarity and, accordingly, expensive. Multicolored Indian moonstones are usually cheaper than the classic blue moonstones, so that everyone can choose a stone that matches the taste and budget.
