Special Optical Effect:
Adularescence: sometimes also name as Sheen or Schiller. Moonstone will show a bluish-to silvery-white reflection reflect caused by light reflecting from microscopic layers of the two types of feldspar. (orthoclase & albite feldspar) and partly due to light scattering. Scattering occurs when light is randomly scattered (or reflected) by particles in a substance. Blue is typically much more strongly scattered than red light.
Chatoyancy: some moonstone may also exhibit cat's-eye effect. Chatoyancy is an optical phenomenon distinguished by a unique reflection of light that closely resembles the slit-eye of a cat. Due to the abundant and parallel inclusions inside the stone.
