How Do You See The Moon?

Through telescopes or lunacy or tidal wombs, the moon can be viewed in many different ways. Below are some pale and lunar things available for purchase in my SHOP or click HERE for the full White Album gallery.

My favourite are these moonstone earrings…

The Romans believed moonstone was formed of solidified rays of moonlight. I believed this too for a while. Moonstone is actually formed from alternating layers of Orthoclase and Albite; the lunar glow, or adularescence, is caused by light slipping and diffracting between the two layers.
