It’s slightly different from moonstone, in that it has a milky white appearance and shows flashes of iridescent blue and other colours when light catches the stone, hence the name rainbow.This colour play has made rainbow moonstone one of our most popular stones.
In ancient Rome it was thought that the light of the moon was captured by the stone, and that the phases of the moon could be seen in the stone, hence the name, Moonstone.
