Moonstone is the birthstone for June. Ancient Romans believed that moonstone was formed from the frozen moonlight, giving this beautiful, shimmering stone its name.

The sometimes show either a multirayed star or a cat’s eye. Considered a sacred stone in India, moonstone is said to bring good fortune. The most prized moonstones are from Sri Lanka; India, Australia, the United States, Mayanmar, and Madagascar are also sources.

The fine silver earrings are 1-3/4 inches long, and the earwires are handmade from sterling silver.
