Rainbow Moonstone Pendant in Aluminium Wire
A large rainbow labradorite gemstone wire wrap pendant set with aluminium wire. The stone features a stunning rainbow flash of colors from orange, yellow, and blue depending on the angle of lighting. The flashy gemstone is accented with elegant weaves, coils, and spirals of silver colored aluminium wire.
WIRE: Aluminium wire costs just a fraction the cost of sterling silver, and does not tarnish or darken. The aluminium lets me create really special jewelry, with a price tag that makes it accessible to many more people. The pendant is hung on a silver-plated copper chain and packaged in a hand-stamped gift box. This powerful and colorful gemstone necklace is a perfect choice for the woman who loves jewelry with a magical touch.
CHAIN: The pendant is photographed on a silver-plated copper snake chain, available in lengths of 16 or 20 inches. 16 inches is the default option, just add a "message to seller" at checkout if you prefer 20 inches. The silver plating on the chain will eventually wear off, but its a great affordable option.
SIZE: 2 13/16 inches x 1 3/8 inches
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.
