It’s a blue moonstone.
Interesting, I always thought that all moonstones that had a translucent base and blue sheen, whether its blue alone or mixed with green, yellow, etc that they're classified as rainbow moonstones but it looks as if "Blue Moonstones" are a kind all their own under the moonstone umbrella. Lovely!
I’m not sure to be honest with you, which is why I modified my original comment. I own both kinds and they’re such lovely gems. They’re hypotonic in a way. I hope you get one soon. Thanks again!
Beautiful moonstone. It reminds me of the rainbow colors that oil sometimes makes on water. Thanks for the information on moonstones.When you said that I looked it up and it sounds as if they are indeed seperate. I'm too lazy to go and link the article/page that I found but if you're super curious let me know and I'll go back and find it but I believe they even stated that rainbow moonstone vs. blue moonstone even has a different chemical composition. I don't think that it was from a prominent research lab or site so who really knows?!
& Your ring stuck out because I have a sweet little 3.5mm omc & a gorgeous clear as water moonstone that I want to set in a more modern setting.
Another poster gave me these ideas for the ring in my small purchases thread but def something along these lines. The moonstone has yellow, pink, orange and blue in it though so I suppose it's a rainbow moonstone despite blue being the most dominant and that it's translucent instead of transparent.
The rainbow/blue flash is really difficult to get at night!
The yellow gold ring on the middle digit, is that an Ivy and Rose setting?
What are the side stones with the purple spinel? That's a gorgeous dark purple without gray!
Sorry if this was asked before but is that a saph? Also- is it a custom ring? Absolutely gorgeous!
