What is this Stone? Feldspar?

I created this pendant and don't know anything about this stone. I purchased it a long time ago from a gem show and did not write down the name of the stone. Now that I want to put it out for sale I will get questions about it that I wont be able to answer.

Can anyone help me with information on this?

2010 County Fair Entry

I Finished It........

I am so happy the way this necklace came out. I was worried because I have never made this type of necklace before and only had a pattern for a bracelet in this style.

I knew I wanted something light and airy, but also with multiple strands. With the size of the pendant the necklace needs to support some weight. I think it still have a very classy, feminine look and feel to it.

I have received many compliments on it so far. I hope you like it also.

Pendant for 2010 Fair Entry

Here are two pictures of the same pendant that I will be entering into the San Diego County Fair this year.

The post below shows my first idea with the beads on the side. I think these smaller beads match in color better with the Moonstones.

2010 Fair Entries

I need a little help. I am creating a three gemstone pendant including two Rainbow Moonstones purchased from and a Labradorite bead. I am adding crystals on the outside of the pendant.

What I need to know is if the color of the blue crystals look good with the Rainbow Moonstones. I think they look good with the Labradorite, but not sure they look good with the Moonstones.

What do you think?
