Hello, I'm looking for a high quality blue or rainbow moonstone to make a pendant. I tried to go through the old threads to find a seller, but am having trouble finding that info. Any advice?

Cdgemstones has one at the moment which is spectacular. I remember a few years ago that thegemstoneproject used to be able to source very high quality ones from mayer and watt (they are not a cheap source. The rainbow ones were jaw dropping though).

The other long time vendor of blue sheen moonstone around here was heartsofwater. Again less active recently though.

The one from Cdgemstones is gorgeous, just a bit more than I can pay for now. I've written Sally from Hearts of Water to see if she has stones to make into a pendant... I've seen less stuff from her as of late. Cecile Raley has gorgeous things, but I'm looking for a cabochon... thank you both!

Why do you want a blue moonstone? Is it because it carries deep healing and feminine energies?

I could certainly use the healing energies (didn't know they had them!), but I just find I like rainbow moonstones too. I love colored stones, mostly emeralds, but my grandmother used to have a gorgeous moonstone necklace that has since been lost, and I think the pandemic has made me nostalgic.

I would contact desert rose on IG. shes heading to the tuscon gem shows and might be able to find something for you

Last intergem show I went to had lots of moonstone. I forget the dealer, but it’s where I got mine. Super high cabochon too. It’s one of few gems I trust getting at gem shows, as long as you don’t can spot the difference in opalescent glass, which is a common simulant, but easy to spot if you know the difference. This huge gem was around $250 if I remember correctly. 76A69984-EDED-433C-A07E-988FF6CFB1A9.jpeg DFBB91EB-78C7-496C-98B8-CBA7229634DD.jpeg

OP, what size/shape are you looking for in a moonstone? Budget?

I love this 7ct fat pear-shape rainbow moonstone cabochon for a pendant ... it is a lovely moonstone but spendy at $695

I have bought from this etsy vendor before (jadeite) and found her photos and descriptions accurate and she has solid customer service; I do recommend her and would buy from her again.

I am looking forward to seeing the moonstones that Sally/HOW comes up with --- she has a good eye!

Oh wow, that's gorgeous! And substantial! I'll definitely consider it, but I'm waiting to see what Sally has to say. I do like the shape of this stone. I'm looking to make a simple pendant with a fine, gem quality moonstone with few inclusions, and the moonstone above is around my budget, actually. Thank you! I know rainbow and blue moonstones are totally different, but I love both.

Thank you all! Sally sent me some images to choose from, and I'm waiting on prices. I'll post them as soon as I get a minute, since I'm having trouble deciding!

We're choosing the stone and style! I think I'm leaning towards a prong setting with a bigger, round stone. Sally showed me a beautiful blue marquise stone that doesn't fit what I am looking for, but it is quite extraordinary. I seem to have lost the image, but I'll try to find it!

OK, I picked my moonstone (smaller cab) and the project is ready to go! I have some stones to set (a bright red spinel that I want in a ring, what might be a sapphire that was my mother's, an emerald) and I have loved working with Sally, so hopefully we can start some more projects soon!
