This strand of Multicolor Moonstone Beads has:
Quantity: about 50 beads (9″ strand)
Shape: Faceted heart drop briolette shape
Quality: These Multicolor Moonstone Beads are about an AB grade (maybe a bit higher even). They are quite lovely with soft variations in color. The cut is good, with very few (if any) issues at the drill hole. They are generally translucent (although some are opaque) with a medium amount of shimmer. I am pretty impressed with these guys – they’re absolutely sweet.
Moonstone is an alternate birthstone for June, and Hindu lore says that the radiant shimmer of moonstone is from captured moonbeams in the stone. Dreamy, eh?
