Flat Octagonal Labradorite Silver Pendant
An unusual Labradorite gemstone cut with a flat surface and exhibiting many different hues of blue and grey and a lovely display of internal structures formed as the mineral was created. The gemstone is set in silver and comes complete with an 18 inch silver chain. The images show that the colour can change from a grey to a lovely blue.
Labradorite is a plagioclase feldspar mineral, displaying an irridescent optical effect called labradorescence, so as the stone is moved it responds by changes of hue and colour. This irridescence is due to a scattering of the reflected light, from microscopic parallel intergrowths of Albite and Orthoclase minerals. Each stone displays different patterns of lines and inclusions inside its matrix, providing that individuality.
According to native Canadian Inuit legend, the Northern lights were imprisoned in the rocks of the Canadian Labrador coast and appear to be visible in the gemstone.
A birthstone for Aquarius , Pisces and Cancer.
Labradorite is called the Stone of Transformation , providing strength and perseverance in times of change . Also may relieve anxiety and stress.
