Description

Spectacular twinning on this nice size Labradorite Oval semi-precious cabochon pendant.

It can display a beautiful iridescent play of colors, caused by internal fractures in the mineral that reflect light back and forth, dispersing it into different colors. This effect, known as labradorescence, gives Labradorite its appeal and fame. Labradorite belongs to the Plagioclase Feldspar group, having the defining “Albite Twinning”, a phenomena created in the crystal structure during its growth.

Labradorite was discovered on an island in Labrador, Canada, in the second half of the 18th century. Traditionally it has been used for jewelry production in France and England.

The pendant comes with a .925 sterling silver chain made in Italy.
