Zodiac : Cancer

Updated: Jul 31, 2020



We are celebrating Cancer here at The Gem Studio, it’s their time in the spotlight, or should we say moonlight? 


The beautiful iridescence of the moon hidden behind the clouds, rolled into one mysteriously pure stone. A part of the feldspar family, the moonstone can include a variety of different colors. Moonstone can be transparent or opaque, the combination of color and visibility makes every stone different. The colorful shimmer of color is called adularescence. Adularescene creates the well sought-after magic within the stone; the magic of the moon here on Earth. 


Cancers are represented by the crab because they are often found to “retreat inside their shell,” when uncomfortable. Generally introverted people, Cancers  prefer deep connections with  a few people rather than socializing with many. Cancers are protective and intuitive, but if you’re able to get past that hard shell, they make great friends for life.
