Item details

Labradorite is an iridescent gemstone with a fascinating schiller or metallic luster when viewed from certain angles. A member of the plagioclase feldspar group along with andesine and sunstone, labradorite is reasonably hard at 6 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale and has a perfect cleavage in one direction.

The ground color of labradorite is a dark smoky gray, but when light strikes the stone in a particular direction, it displays striking rainbow-colored reflections. Most typically, these metallic tints are violet, blue and green; but sometimes yellow, orange and red can be seen. This effect is so unique to labradorite that it is referred to as labradorescence.

The labradorescent effect is believed to be due to the presence of very fine platelets of different compositions as well as minute inclusions of limenite, rutile and possible magnetite which cause the diffraction of light.

It was first found in 1770 on the Labrador Peninsula in Canada. It is also found in Norway, and the former USSR. There is a blue semi-transparent variety called spectrolite that is only found in Finland.

Product Details
~~~~~~~~~~~
Material: Labradorite
Shape: Round
Cut: Smooth - Polished
Size: Approximately 10mm
Color: Silvery Blue

Please check sidebar for current quantity

Most of the gemstone beads are sold by the half strands unless otherwise indicated in the listing. I will try to ship them strung if an even number is ordered otherwise they are shipped loosely in a zip lock bag.

Since these are gemstone beads they may not be perfectly round. No strand is exactly the same as another. The pictures are a good representation of what you will receive but may not be the exact ones as shown in the photos. So that every customer gets beads similar to the pictures I cannot hand pick out specific beads or strands.

*Plated Metal:
Tarnish occurs as soon as an item is exposed to the air so to help prevent tarnish I always store my plated items in zip lock bags and tight containers. You can use anti-tarnish strips as well.

To help jewelry from tarnishing so quickly it is recommend that a person does not spray on perfume or other sprays while wearing your plated jewelry & to also to wait until your lotion or cream is dry or has been absorbed by your skin before you wear your plated jewelry.

Oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, perfume and the like may react with metal/plated jewelry and will cause it to tarnish easily. This also goes with sweat, so make sure you don’t forget to remove your plated jewelry when you exercise or anything that would require heavy physical work, and also when swimming.

After every use you should clean your plated jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt it has acquired. Gently rubbing the surface of your plated jewelry using a soft jewelry cloth also helps restore shine.

Some people will spray lacquer onto plated items to help prevent tarnish.
