Item details

This listing is for one pair of 8mm round RAINBOW MOONSTONE "A+" Grade stone cabochons, cut by a premium grade cutting factory in China. This interesting natural color stone is a mixture of two species of Feldspar, orthoclase and albite, which grow intermingled in thin stacked layers - when light falls between these thin flat crystalline layers, it scatters in many directions, causing a flash of silvery blue or aqua light; this quality is called Schiller, or "Adularescence".

Most of the Rainbow Moonstone on the market today is cut in India - and most is not calibrated for setting in pre-made stone settings. The advantage of these cabochons is they were precision cut in China, in calibrated 8mm sizes; they are substantially cut, with a 4mm dome; the stone is graded "A+" by the cutting factory, see factory label in the third picture. In my opinion - the cutting is Very nicely done, you should buy these if you are using premade settings - but the amount of schiller is less on these cabs than with my stock of Indian cut Rainbow Moonstone, if you are making your own settings the Indian cut stones will give you more flash.

These stones were designed to be set in your bezel setting - the size is Perfect for rings and earrings and tie tacs and cuff links and many other things! Your bid for one item buys One Pair of these beautiful cabochons, taken from the lot shown in the second picture - several pairs are available, buy as many pairs as you need, for the same small $3 shipping fee.

If you like these, please visit my Etsy store! There's a good selection of natural stone beads and cabochons in stock, including more Moonstone in other sizes, shapes and colors - all are offered at very reasonable "buy it now" prices - buy two or more items on one combined invoice, to save on shipping fees!
