Labradorite is treasured for its remarkable play of color (labradorescence). The stone is a member of the Feldspar family and usually is gray-green, dark gray, black or grayish-white. It’s composed in aggregate layers that refract light in iridescent flashes of blue, gold, pale green, or coppery red. It’s named for the area in which it was first discovered- Labrador, Canada in 1770. However it is referenced in legends by older Inuit tribes, claiming that Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), transforming an ordinary stone into the extraordinary- shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms. Labradorite became a popular gem in Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries.
This beautiful Labradorite specimen has a phenomenal color play and is rough on all sides with a polished face.
