Polished Labradorite Desk Specimen
Labradorite is a plagioclase feldspar that exhibits a really cool phenomenon called labradorescence which is a fantastic play of color against the dark background. Labradorescence is caused by internal fractures in the mineral that reflect light back and forth, dispersing it into different spectrums of colors. In order to get this cool play of color, the cutter has to be very mindful of how the phenomenon is best exhibited because this isn’t visible in every direction. This phenomenon is best shown in cabochons or in rounded specimens like these. The stone is named for the Labrador peninsula in Canada where it was first found in 1770. It’s still found in Canada, as well as Mexico, Russia, and the USA. Keywords of labradorite are magic and protection, reminding us that we all have magical powers within us.
