Manmade Moonstone[edit]

Could anyone expand on this subject. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.181.97.102 (talk) 09:56, 13 January 2009 (UTC)


Manmade Moonstone == Reply[edit]

A manmade moonstone is a gem that is created in a lab. It is basically a simulated stone created by man and not by mother nature.

Man made gems are usually lab created to make it exactly the same as a real genuine gemstone but sold at about a fraction of what an authentic or genuine gemstone would cost.

Doubling[edit]

The page describes the same mineral that is portrayed at this page. --Arex ru (talk) 11:12, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Sites I used[edit]

I found information on sites that sell moonstone jewelry and I don't see why we can't use these sites since they have similar information to the official sites. Rapetkewicz (talk) 13:18, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

We don't need to promote commercial websites. As noted on your talk, please read WP:RS, a website selling gemstones is not a reliable source. Vsmith (talk) 13:46, 23 April 2012 (UTC)
Most of those sites included the same information that is included in the page already Rapetkewicz (talk) 13:46, 26 April 2012 (UTC)

Alternative images[edit]

Photosubmissions received three photos of a Moonstone found in 1918 on an expedition to Mt Kilimanjaro. Possibly the world's largest. Some combination of the following images may be appropriate for the article.

Seems the only one would be the first (don't need the egg and scale) with a note of dimensions and mass/wt in the caption. Vsmith (talk) 21:12, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Pokemon?[edit]

Is the line about Pokemon evolution really relevant?--71.62.31.168 (talk) 07:38, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

No. Gone. Vsmith (talk) 13:33, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
