I have 2 questions regarding moonstones:
I just returned from gem shopping in Tucson. I emptied my
envelope containing my new blue moonstones out onto my table and
almost immediately my cat jumped up on the table and attempted to
eat one of them. I got it out of her mouth but now it has some
slight scratches on one side of the stone. I would appreciate any
suggestions on how to polish off the scratches. Help!
I’m looking through jewelry publications, i.e. the AGTA award
winners, and the photos of moonstones lo ok quite blue. A lot bluer
than any I saw at AGTA or the other big shows. Are they being set
with something under the moostone, such as a thin slice of opal or
other bluish stone to enhance the color? Or, is it just the way the
photographer is able to catch the natural color in the moonstone
with the proper lighting?
