Bead embroidered blue goldstone cab. I used blue goldstone pearls for the necklace also.
lovely, really nice!

Very nice work. I sure wouldn't call that blue moonstone though so I am sure it is a name that is used where ever you bought it. A bluish moonstone would be very transparent with some colors "floating" through it. What you have is what I'd call blue aventurine, or blue goldstone.
At any rate very nice workmanship on it and it shows off the stone well. Donna
You're right. I googled blue moonstone before I posted the message, and it was a different stone. But the shop where I bought it, calls it blue moonstone, so I used the name anyway. When I google blue goldstone, it's exactly like the cab I used.
Thank you for clearing this out!
Katrien, it is c'est belle, c'est magnifique! I see Donna already told you it's blue goldstone. I recognized it immediately as I have blue goldstone in my stash. To me it looks like stars glittering in the night sky. I can imagine wearing a piece like this with a velvet gown to an opera, perhaps Don Giovanni? A few years ago, at my local theatre, I saw Tales of Hofmann. I loved it. Opera is so much better when you can see it live.
Katrien, you are entirely welcome, I just knew that it was a shop name or a local name. And I like to be able to help when I can. My husband and I are "rock nuts". He used to prospect, and I've dealt with jewelry in one way or another most of my adult life, so I've gotten to know a bit about rocks. Donna
Very classy, this piece! And isn't it nice that there's so much knowledge here? I don't know anything about stones yet. Your blue goldstone is lovely.
Greetings from Karin.
Hi Katrien, its very pretty your necklace, it would deserve a lovley name as the goldstone makes it looking inspired from the nightsky with stars.
May the beads be with you!
