DESCRIPTION: Arizona Moon Quartz is a newly discovered rare form of quartz hand gathered from a remote location west of Sedona, in northern Arizona. This rare form of natural, untreated quartz displays a strong optical effect known as adularescence similar to the optical effect found in high quality moonstone. The enchanting play of light and soft shimmer with a warm moonlight glow make Arizona Moon Quartz an ideal gemstone for jewelry, conveying the essence of femininity and sensuality. With a hardness of 7 on the mohs scale, the stone is relatively hard and durable and better choice for rings and bracelets than moonstone. Light entering the stone it totally dispersed by layers of interlocking micro-crystals which act similar to diffraction grating or fresnal lens which scatter light. When a laser beam is directed at a quartz crystal the beam of light pass through the crystal virtually unchanged. When the laser beam is directed on a piece of Arizona Moon Quartz, the beam of light is totally dispersed in all directed, bouncing and reflecting off millions of microlites, or micro-crystals. The crystals are about one hundredth of a  millimeter in size, shaped like a cylinder and stacked into parallel bands of ribbons like hot dogs in a package. The laser light completely fills the stone causing it to glow brightly as if it were the actual source of the light. Strong metamorphic pressure aligned the microcrystals into microscopic parallel bands which reflect the light like millions of crystal prisms. Precious opal has a similar arrangement of smaller silica sphere also stacked in layers. This type of crystallographic arrangement is extremely rare in nature and unique to occur with this amount of optical intensity. Girasol quartz and other forms of pegmatitic moon quartz are found in Brazil, Madagascar, and India. They contain fluid inclusions or bubbles which are much larger and randomly arranged compared to the aligned and layered structure of Arizona Moon Quartz. They generally have a weaker optical effect. The surface of Arizona Moon Quartz is frosted like etched glass due to the small,even size of the aligned mirco-crystals.


Much of the rough stone displays flat parallel faces due to the parallel alignment of the micro-crystals. Since quartz has no cleavage, this psudo-cleavage results in platy, blocky pieces of rough stone. Stones displaying adularescence  are rich in history and folklore, continuing to intrugue jewelry designers, collectors, and metaphysicans. The ancient Romans believed these stones were the magical crystallization of actual moonlight. 


The ancient Greeks called the stone Aphroselene, a combination of the names for the love goddess, Aphrodite, and the moon goddess, Selene. Thought to have magical powers, it was used to treat all manner of physical and emotional problems. In modern day India it is regarded as a holy gemstone, thought to give the wearer beautiful visions at night. In Arab cultures, women often wear the stone secretly sewn in their clothing as a symbol of fertility. Attracting love, beautiful dreams and visions,femininity, sensuality, and dispersing negative energy and thought are all properties attributed with this magical stone.
