How does moonstone affect a person?

MOONSTONE is a colorless transparent or almost transparent orthoclase (or other feldspar), which in a certain direction reflects a bluish or white pearlescent tint – the adularescence effect. The adularescence effect is compared to the glow of the moon, which is where it gets its name. In some ways, this effect is similar to the shimmer on white pearls.
Without specifying the mineral, it is correct to call only orthoclase and its transparent or translucent variety, adularia, moonstone. In all other cases, it is recommended to indicate in the name what mineral it is represented by: microcline moonstone, sanidine moonstone, etc. The moonstone effect occurs due to the thin-lamellar structure of the minerals. Light, falling on a stone, penetrates through its thinnest plates, reflecting from them. Due to this, refraction (interference) of light occurs, which we see in the form of beautiful iridescence. Samples of feldspars that exhibit a moonstone effect are cut like precious stones. The effect becomes most clearly visible on polished surfaces. In order for it to appear at its best, the stone is given a convex, polished surface. To make jewelry, stones are almost always polished into a cabochon or flat surface, and are almost never cut. Moonstone can be minerals from the feldspar family such as adularia, microcline, orthoclase, sanidine and others. In the trade, moonstone is often referred to as opal, selenite, and imitations of frosted iridescent glass, which is incorrect. English name: Moonstone Other names (synonyms): Aglaurite (orthoclase with blue iridescence from Eastern Bohemia), hecatolite, jandaracand, pearlspar, cassinite (barium-bearing orthoclase with moonstone effect from California, USA) First isolated and described: Moonstone has been known to mankind since ancient times.
