Labradorite is a member of the plagioclase feldspar group, which also includes andesine and sunstone. Labradorite displays a schiller called labradorescence in lustrous metallic tints, often blue and green. It is mainly caused by interference of light from lattice distortion.
Labradorite desposits are found in Labrador, Canada (hence the name), as well as in Australia, Madagascar, Mexico, Russia and the USA.
Lovely and unusual variety of stones. U.S. companies stick to the same old "regulars". Boring!
GemSelect also does a fine job of rating the stones. Gemstones are meant to dazzle and a great way to add flash and fun for those of us who like color. Will be happy to share photos of the stones when they are set.
