Gemmologist’s corner - Labradorite

21/02/2022     Jewellery & Gems

A mineral showing a ‘play’ of colour that is my all-time favourite rock is ‘Labradorite’, named after the region of Canada, it is mined, Labrador.  It too has a shimmery reflection of colour that changes as you move it in the light.  It displays predominately green, blue and grey colours and has an ethereal quality, in this case the splitting of light comes from layers of mineral material rather than spheres.  It is most often used in beads or ornamental material, we have a number of lots of gemstone beads in this sale which include labradorite
