Hi all, I'm currently having a great love with blue moonstone and would like to know where I can get a transparent moonstone that are both heavy in carat (5carat +) and have a strong glow.

BTW, can I also have a look at your moonstone collection so that I can have an idea on good quality moonstone.

Thanks alot for the help!

So you need to decide on the type you want. Its not really enough to say "blue" as there are 2 types.

Rainbow moonstone, which is not orthoclase but labradorite, is probably going to be a bit easier to get. You can get some with strong blues.

I think you should read a bit on the 2 types as that can govern where you decide to go.

A well centered strong blue glow will be quite pricey, and of course the bigger the more it can cost.

Thanks for the replies. Actually I am happy with either a blue and transparent labradorite or a real moonstone (although I'm not quite sure how to locate these). So would like to ask you guys opinion as to where to source a big carat, eye clear moonstone/labradorite with strong sheen.
