Labradorite 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 deposits are found in Labrador, Canada (hence the name), as well as in Australia, Madagascar, Mexico, Russia and the USA. Rainbow moonstone is the name given to a variety of labradorite that exhibits a blue or multicolored adularescence on a light body color. Spectrolite is a rare specimen of labradorite which is known to display a full spectrum of colors, not only violet, blue and green; but also yellow, orange and red.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
