Rated 4 out of 5 by nix76e Not a bad stone, but hard to tell it is Moonstone
So, the cutting is very well done, and as a stone it is pretty - snapped right into the pendant casting I got and looks nice. But I bought it as the last part of suite of moonstone - got the ring and earrings from JTV and they are beautiful - and at a quick glance you wouldn't know this is moonstone. First off, it is too clear for moonstone, it has some of that cloudy quality you look for but not a lot. If you get the right angle on it you can get that holographic blue play of color over the table but not as dramatic as you get with a cab cut. It sort of looks like an average clear but vivid stone at a distance. And interesting addition to the collection and certainly pretty - will suit the purpose because it doesn't detract from the reall show-y quality of the earrings and ring, which is good because they match and this doesn't. But if you are looking for a real moonstone play of blue lightening through a fog white field (which is what moonstone should be) go with the cab cuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jleh Exactly like picture ...
This stone deffinately did not disappoint... The clarity is amazing as the stone is clear and free of inclusions... However make sure to do your research ... This stone is meant to be more clear then cloudy ... Not to mention i got the stone on clearance and free shipping ...

I am a fan of moonstone. This is a lovely gem. I am very happy with my purchase. The shipping was prompt, the packaging a test of patience and preserverance. You will be glad to know I was victorious!.

The moonstone looks like a crystal opal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by avidgemlover Disappointing !
Altho nice to look at, not what I was hoping for. Sent this one right back, looked like a piece of glass or faceted lead crystal, lacked the opalescense I expected from a rainbow moonstone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by violettabelle Did not fit into 8 x 6 earring castings
I had three of these stones. Sent one back as it lacked the lovely blue schiller effect. The other two fell right through the holes in the 8 x 6 earring castings I bought for them at JTV. Luckily the castings also come in a 7 x 5 oval size. Those have been ordered and the 8 x 6 pair may work for another grandaughter's aquamarine stones. I have my fingers crossed these 7 x 5's will work for the moonstones as my grandaughter's birthday is in two weeks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by neeceeb cloudy and dull
Aside from the fact it was not at all like pictured on jtv.com? It almost looked plastic, no sparkle and not very clear ... not much color. Also, could not get it to set properly in the ring setting I purchased to go with it. It's going back along with the ring. Very disappointed :(
