About Spinel: Spinel is the great impostor of gemstone history: many famous rubies in crown jewels around the world are actually spinels. Although commonly thought of as red, spinel can be found in a range of beautiful pastel shades. These outstanding shades of pink, purple, orange, blue, plus every combination in between make spinels some of the most desirable stones in the world.
About Moonstone: Moonstone is one of the most mythical of all gemstones. With its exotic, lunar name and its milky unique rainbow sheen, it has been a highly prized stone throughout history. Moonstone is a sacred stone to the people of India, and was named by the Romans for its ability to reflect moon light, making it a sacred stone to this culture as well. Legend has it that amulets of moonstone, associated with the goddesses Isis (Egyptian), Diana (Roman) and Selene (Greek), were hung in fruit trees to produce abundant crops. Moonstone is one of the birthstones for the month of June (along with pearl).
