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.
I have known about GemSelect for a while but this is my first purchase because I am a jewelry maker in the market for lower-priced gems that I can resell in jewelry. It's difficult to make much of a profit on cheaper jewelry when the shipping price is sometimes half of the total cost of the stone. I would make more purchases if I was in the market for a lot of higher-priced gems, but for now it will be just every once in a while that I shop here.
That being said, I think that the prices for gems are fair and I will continue shopping with GemSelect for my higher-priced gems that I make for myself or for orders that want specific gems that I can only find here.
