Details

A unique semi precious mineral which exhibits great flashes of colour, particularly when the highly polished freeform is moved. In the hand the surface not only displays wonderful and deep electric luminescence, the surface is silky smooth and tactile, a unique hard stone which has reminiscence of Victorian butterfly wing designs, natural butterfly wings of similar iridescence were incorporated in to glass topped tables and glazed wall hangings, very popular in the late nineteenth century.


Labradorite is a member of the plagioclase feldspar series. Highly sought after for it's lustres in the jewellery industry and interior world. Labradorite rarely forms crystals, but when they do occur they are fairly tubular and sometimes twinned.


Other cases show occurrences of granular or compact habits. The name derives from one of the discoveries of the minerals origins in Labrador, North American Peninsula in the 1770s, named by Moravian Missionaries.
