Adularescence is a term used to describe the naturally occurring blue, iridescent luster of moonstones. This effect is "created when light falls between the thin, flat layers that comprise the mineral and scatters in many directions." This beautiful stone, mined mostly in India, Sri Lanka, and Madagascar, is becoming increasingly popular in designer jewelry, and is prized for its alluring adularescent quality.
