Labradorite freeform sculpture, the polished mineral has been extracted from layers in Madagascar, carved by hand and polished to a high lustrous finish. Labradorite a member of the plagioclase feldspar series is a very cool resilient material. The rock like rock crystal is durable and will not alter now smooth and finished, creating this natural, yet unique sculptural showpiece. 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.
The Labradorite finished and polished in its creation in Madagascar, as the sculpture shown in our illustrations above, has through a very fortuitous circumstance developed a landscape scene within the bands of natural blue and gold bands. In the main image above one may see the rolling clouds passing over a hilly landscape. A beautiful natural element full of discovery and reflective irredescent colour.
Other cases show occurrences of granular or compact habits. The name derives from one of it's origins in Canada where it was first discovered in Labrador, Peninsula in the 1770s and named by Moravian Missionaries.
