The firey blue moonstones, which is an alternate birthstone for June, is a member of the Feldspar mineral group. It is a relatively soft stone, so take extra care to not scratch your moonstone jewelry. Store the jewelry in a velvet pouch or some other protective container to avoid damaging the surface. And of course, learn to clean it properly.

Things You'll Need


Clean moonstones with soap and water only. Do not use an ultrasonic cleaner on moonstone.

Soak your moonstone in a glass of warm water with a drop of liquid soap. Allow time for the dirt to loosen and dissolve.

Scrub lightly with a soft toothbrush to remove any stubborn dirt around the stone’s jewelry settings.

Dry and polish your moonstone with a soft cloth.
