Rainbow moonstone is formed through a fascinating natural process that takes millions of years. It is a variety of the mineral feldspar, composed primarily of albite and orthoclase. As molten rock cools deep within the Earth's crust, the feldspar minerals crystallize and form layers. These layers refract light in a captivating manner, giving rise to the alluring phenomenon known as adularescence.

Adularescence is what makes rainbow moonstone so unique. When light enters the stone, it encounters these alternating layers of feldspar, causing it to scatter and bounce off the surface. The result is a stunning display of iridescent colors that seem to dance and shimmer, resembling the soft glow of the moon. The hues often include shades of blue, purple, and sometimes even hints of orange and green.
