Moonstone is a varietal name given to the tranlucent Feldspar Labradorite. This particular stone is a "cat's eye" gem, and is one of the very few of it's kind that I have seen. This stone is a nice "Oval Cabochon" cut gem with a fairly disticnt "eye" running across the width of the stone (not lengthwise). When it is viewed by reflected light, exhibits a faint blue-grey "sheen". This is a very attractive and hard to find Moonstone which is highly desirable among collectors.
