The MOONSTONE:

Jewellery with a Moonstone is traditionally given on a 13th wedding anniversary.

It's found in Brazil, Germany, India, Madagascar, Mexico, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and the United States.

Moonstone is an opalescent Semi-Precious Stone with a blue or white sheen, referred to as a “Shimmer“- somewhat like the moonshine.

The sheen, called adularescence, is created by the reflection of light between its Crystal layers.

This stone was used in jewellery by the Romans, believing  that the stone was actually formed from the light rays of the moon.

Moonstone is considered a sacred stone in India.
