Our National Air and Space Museum is currently marking the 50th anniversary of the Apollo missions—especially the first moon landing on July 20, 1969—with a special exhibition Apollo to the Moon, the story of human exploration of the moon by the United States. The exhibition features an unparalleled display of artifacts from Apollo and earlier missions, including a huge F-1 rocket engine, a scale model of the Saturn V rocket, space food, and personal items that the astronauts took with them into space. The gallery also displays Air and Space Museum treasures: spacesuits worn by Apollo astronauts on the Moon.

Additionally the Air and Space Museum will help lead a national celebration of this milestone Apollo anniversary with a number of other special exhibits and activities. The traveling exhibition Destination Moon is currently on a two-year tour. The newly conserved Neil Armstrong Apollo 11 spacesuit will be displayed again for the first time in 13 years in July 2019. The culmination of this year-long celebration will be a five-day event (July 16-20, 2019) on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

An important feldspar gemstone, labradorite's lovely iridescence arises from light diffracting off closely spaced layers of feldspar crystals. As the stone is rotated, flashes of blue, green, yellow, and red are displayed. Labradorite is named for Labrador where it was first discovered in 1770.

The most well-known of the feldspar gemstones, moonstone is beloved for its distinctive play of color and light—a quality called adularescence. The Romans—who believed that moonstone was formed from the light of the moon—used it in their jewelry. In India, moonstone is considered sacred.
