Halcraft Collection has a wide variety of Natural Moonstone beads as well as coated Moonstone beads. These lustrous beads seem to emanate a light from within them based on the reflection of light over a multitude of microscopic layers within the construct of the stone. The result is the look of a trapped moonbeam, or a captured image of the full moon, cut into a gemstone or bead. Our moonstone beads are mined and faceted in Jaipur, India, and are hand-crafted to make the most of the inner light in the stone. We have vacuum plated light metallic transparent coatings over the surface of many of these faceted moonstone beads, and the results are fascinating! A shimmering light seems to be fighting to break through the transparent metallic and luster coatings, creating a wild and other-worldly look for any of your own jewelry designs.
