This is a gorgeous Moonstone cab wrapped in square Argentium Sterling Silver. This is one of my favorite pieces and it'll be a long time before I part with it if ever he hee
Moonstone is one of the best known and most valuable varieties of feldspar. This translucent gemstone features an iridescent sheen called "adularescence." By virtue of what is termed as adularescence, a gem displays a billowy floating light which appears to come from below the surface.
Argentium Sterling Silver is the highest quality of Sterling Silver available today and is highly tarnish resistant. Sterling Silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, Argentium is still the 92.5% silver but it replaces some of the copper with the element Germanium which gives it a higher tarnish resistance and less people are allergic to it than just normal Sterling Silver.
