The labradorite, a feldspar gemstone, is a unique beauty known for its stunning and distinct property: Labradorescence. This optical effect can be described as irisdescent flashes of light that are exclusive to the labradorite, because of its mineral properties.
What I love most about the labradorite is that each stone's flashes of colour are never alike to another's. It is just like possessing your own personal rainbow in your hands!

The Labradorite, named after a province in Canada called Labrador (an area where the stone is found commonly). You can identify the Labrador by its many streaks and dark lines - a very common property! In fact, it is really hard to find a labradorite that hardly has any flaws.
The value of a labradorite also is determined by its labradorescence. A greater play of colour will increase its value.
I am on constant lookout for labradorites - and all my other gemstones - which reflect outstanding and breathtaking qualities compared to common pieces. As such, you can expect nothing less than high quality and authentic labradorites used in my earrings and necklaces in my store.
