   I ordered a small batch of moonstones off ebay. They came too me looking pretty dull and dirty. I've rinsed them with dawn and water and gave them a soft brushing. I'm looking to brighten them up any suggestions? I was thinking about dunking them in a dilute bleach or hydrogen peroxide. I'm going to grind them down and make a small pendant. Anyone have any experience with this? Thanks in advance.

I can't imagine that moonstones would be so porous that they would have absorbed any oil or such. Just a brushing with soap and water should be more than adequate to clean them.
