The moonstone belongs to the feldspar family. It is characterized by its lunar reflections called the adularescence phenomenon. It exists in several varieties of colours (white, orange, green, blue, grey...). It can also present a more or less marked phenomenon of labradorescence (oil effect), chatoyance (cat's eye) and even sometimes asterism (star) depending on its origin.
