Moonstone?
« on: December 06, 2015, 07:25:30 AM »
Not quite sure what this stone is. Got it from a random mass package. As you see it has creamy beige colors and layering(a slight sheen that changes with positioning, like a tigers eye) but then over top a hidden gloss layer with scaly pattern that shines gold. I'm at a loss.

It looks like those lines and what look to be sparkles are right for a type of feldspar.

Looking up feldspar found some stones that shine like it - aventurescence?

So, I was right? That is moonstone? Thank you! See the shine threw me off! It has coloring similar to other moonstone I have but none of them have that golden pattern, so, I wasn't sure.
