This month, a new moon is expected to bring its first-ever mass production.
That could mean a surge in moon jewelry sales, though not necessarily a bump in sales for the traditional jewelry industry.
Moon jewelry is usually made with a metal alloy, and the metal is often cast in a particular color to create a special effect.
In 2016, Moon Metals reported sales of more than $5 billion in the U.S. alone.
But the moon is not a regular moon, so moon jewelry has a long history.
Moon jewelry was popularized by Japanese artist Akira Kurosawa and his works include some of the most iconic moon rocks in history, such as the Togashi Moon Stone, a Japanese ceramic moon rock with a face made of gold and white diamonds.
For decades, the moon has been used in jewelry and has even been found in the eye of a comet.
But there are concerns about how moon jewelry will look if it is made with other metals, such a titanium or stainless steel alloy.
Moon metal is more flexible than the alloy used in most jewelry, said Jeff Kowalczyk, a professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at the University of California, Davis.
That means a metal such as titanium could be easier to work with than stainless steel, he said.
But moon jewelry is not made with pure titanium.
Rather, it uses metals that are alloyed with other elements.
Titanium and aluminum are usually alloyed in a process called metallurgical metallurgy, which uses heat and pressure to break down the metal.
Moon metal is made from an alloy of copper and silver called niobium, which is more than 200 times heavier than nickel.
“If you look at the composition of the moon, it’s almost a metallic version of platinum,” Kowalsky said.
The moon has a composition similar to that of platinum, but its weight is less than that of gold.
Kowalski said it would take a few years to fully understand how the moon metal will affect the moon jewelry industry and its production.
The metal could become more expensive because of the weight and heat of metallurgically working it, he added.
The metals used in moon manufacturing could also affect the price of moon jewelry.
“Moon metal has a lot of potential,” said Matt Stott, an analyst at Cowen and Company in Boston.
But it’s still too early to tell if the moon will have a big impact on the jewelry industry, he told ABC News.
“As a matter of fact, we have a lot more uncertainty about moon jewelry,” he said, noting that Moon Metels reported sales last month were up 9.5 percent over the same period last year.
In the meantime, Moon jewelry is being sold at some of Earth’s largest retailers, including Walmart and Target, but it is hard to predict how much it will cost.
Moon prices have risen about 25 percent since 2017, when Moon Metills sales jumped 40 percent, according to MoonMetals.com, which tracks moon jewelry, as the moon rises in the sky.
The market for moon jewelry was once dominated by Japanese artists and collectors.
Now, there are other moon artists, including one in Japan that is starting to sell more Moon Metalls.
But even as Moon Metles sales increase, Kowallczyk worries about the quality of the materials used.
He has received complaints about moon rock, including that it has a soft finish, or that it’s not as shiny as some other moon rocks, he wrote in a recent research note.
Kawalsky is also concerned about the long shelf life of Moon Metells metal.
In the United States, the average life of a moon stone is 20 years.
Moon Metallists use titanium and aluminum, which will last much longer, he says.
