Any idea what this is? I was thinking maybe Pegmatite AKA Moonstone Tourmaline
No idea, will watch this space so I can find out too.
I ran a quick image search and got pretty mized results- everything from “Bi-Color Moonstone” to sunstone to titanate to grey agate and more.
Not very helpful for narrowing down, I’m afraid
If it has the traces of shiny blue (similar to labradorite) I’d say moonstone, but otherwise I haven’t got a solid guess. I’m not a crystal expert though, so hopefully those who are will come share their guesses too!
It reminds me of some type of quartz, but I’m not sure…
Sorry, hopefully someone else has a better answer lol
Apparently it is supposed to be bi-color moonstone. I decided to buy it even though I knew I shouldn’t. It wasn’t what I set out looking for and I wasn’t sure what it was but I figured either way I’d have a nice new crystal.
I have it in my hand and I still don’t know what it is. What I do know is that it looks nothing like the picture.
It could still be moonstone, one of the pictures I took would support that. I have tried and tried to duplicate that shot and can’t. I could take 20 pictures of this thing and none would be the same.
A couple angles make me wonder if it’s calcite.
What do y’all think?
I’m with you, Nixi- the stone you got looks nothing like the first picture. The colors are totally different!
Again, I’m no crystal expert, but for comparison here is a moonstone I bought at a crystal shop in Kielce that I trust:
It’s a cheap piece of stone, but there’s a little bit of that beautiful signature blue highlight inside that helps identify it as a moonstone.
My guess would be that you got something else- perhaps send a picture to the seller and let them know? They should be able to confirm what it is for you
