   Garnierite green moonstone, also known as green feldspar or simply garnierite, is a beautiful variety of moonstone that gets its green color from the presence of nickel. It is typically found as an opaque or translucent stone with a vitreous to pearly luster. The stone is known for its chatoyant effect, which is caused by inclusions of feldspar, and its unique green color, which ranges from light green to dark green.

   Garnierite green moonstone is named after the French geologist Jules Garnier, who discovered the stone in New Caledonia in the 19th century. The stone is also found in other locations around the world, including Madagascar, Russia, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Tanzania, and the USA. The Madagascar garnierite green moonstone is particularly prized for its beautiful green color and chatoyancy. These tumbled stones are a wonderful addition to any crystal collection, and are said to have properties that promote emotional balance, intuition, and spiritual growth. They are also said to be useful for those seeking a connection to the earth and the natural world.
