Labradorite....

Labradorite ((Ca,Na)(Al,Si)4O8), a feldspar mineral, is one of my favorite stones. It occurs in large crystal masses in anorthosite and shows a play of colors called labradorescence. The labradorescence, or schiller effect, is the result of light refracting within lamellar inter-growths. The usually intense colors range from violet, blue, greens, yellows and oranges. Labradorite is also unique in that it must be viewed at a precise angle of light. Each piece or slab is exceptional in the way light is refracted. The resulting color effect is wholly it's own. Labradorite makes amazing jewelry and can be cut, polished or slabbed.
