The setting on this moonstone pendant is relatively simple, since the subtle but extraordinary play of color is such a prominent feature of the stone. A smoothly curving bezel surrounds the deep stone, whose front shows flashes and striations of blue and pale green
On the reverse, a Heron has raised its head and wings in flight, under a Crescent Moon and pair of Stars. The Moon and Stars are references to the cycles of deep time, but also, a reminder to notice the moment in the here and now.
Perhaps you might feel yourself lifted towards the sky on some cool evening breeze, just as the moon and stars come rise above the horizon. Behind you is a Pond, full of life below the smooth surface which reflects the twilight sky.
These aspects of contemplation and observation can give you the freedom to open up in your own life, and ascend towards possibility.

A note about Moonstone's colors:Every effort is made to capture the best color of the gem when the item is photographed for presentation. This depends largely on the angle of the light on the stone when the image is taken. Moonstone's inherent nature means that under the right conditions, the color flash will be very luminous and vibrant. On the other hand, when you view your new piece under some conditions, it could appear whitish, or with only minimal color. This visual reminder of life's changeable nature is part of Moonstone's allure. You can incorporate this idea along with the specific emotional symbolism built into each one-of-a-kind, handmade silver setting. Enjoy!
