Moonstone is the opalescent variety of Orthoclase, which is an alkai feldspar, with a blue or white sheen, referred to as a "schiller", rather like the shine of the moon, hence it's name. The sheen is created by the reflection of light from the internal structure of layers. The layers are thin albite that give the attractive blue, while thicker layers feldspar produce the white color. It's most amazing, and much like the moon!
