Iridescent blue Rainbow Moonstone from Sri Lanka is set in this ornate large cross pendant. Blue Moonstone is found in only one mine in the entire world.The miners use a wooden ladder and a bucket and winch to raise the gemstones from the earth. They can only mine part of the year. In the monsoon season, the mine floods. They are following a single seam of blue Moonstone.
They dig as far as is safe. Then they close that shaft and dig another farther along the seam. No one knows when the Moonstone seam will play out. This is truly a gemstone to cherish. The sparkling accent gemstones are genuine Sky Blue Topaz.
