Magestic Galaxy Rainbow Moonstone Pendant
An intricate wire wrap pendant featuring a large natural rainbow moonstone cabochon. The stone features rainbow flashes of color when hit by the sunlight, due to unique arrangement of atoms in its crystal structure.
The stunning stone is set and accented with tasteful yet intricate weaves, coils and spirals of sterling silver wire. The pendant is hung on a silver-plated copper chain and packaged in a hand-stamped gift box. This whimsical gemstone necklace is an excellent choice for the woman who loves jewelry with a magical touch.
GEMSTONE PROPERTIES: Rainbow moonstone is actually a variety of the mineral labradorite, which is why they both share the same flashy visual effect. When labradorite has a white base rock (aka matrix) it is called rainbow moonstone. If it has a dark matrix, it is just called labradorite. They are both plagioclase feldspar minerals with the same crystal structure, and it is their crystal structure which creates its beautiful interactions with light. The layers in the internal structure of labradorite allow it to reflect certain colors, an effect called "labradorescence". When hit by the sun, the stone lights up with a pearly blue to rainbow iridescence. In dim lighting the stone is dull gray or white, hiding its true beauty.
Labradorite has been prized for centuries, not only for its beauty but also for metaphysical and healing properties. It is thought of as a stone of change and may help bring perseverance through times of uncertainty. It is also believed to reduce fears and insecurities while replenishing faith in one’s self and trust in the world around us. The flashes of color across the stone can help to remind one that things change, but strength is within. Rainbow Moonstone shares all of the properties of labradorite, but it is also associated with the moon and feminine energies.
SIZE: 1 3/4 inch x 7/8 inch at widest points.
CHAIN: The pendant is photographed on a silver-plated copper snake chain, available in lengths of 16 or 20 inches.The silver plating on the chain will eventually wear off, but its a great affordable option. I also have a variety of styles of sterling silver chains available to enhance your pendant, you can see photos in the Chain Section.

CLEANING: Silver will naturally darken, or tarnish, due to reactions with sulfides in the air. Each piece of Kosmic Krystals' silver jewelry comes with a non-tarnish strip and bag that prevents absorbing and trapping the sulfides and other pollutants in the air. If kept in a sealed bag or jewelry box with your silver jewelry the strip will prevent tarnishing for approximately 6 months. Labradorite can be cleaned in a solution formulated to clean metals and nonporous gemstones, such as Hagerty Jewel Clean, to keep your silver bright. Any dirt and debris can be easily removed with a gentle toothbrush and warm soapy water.
