Labradorescence is a side-effect of the molecular change which occurs in large crystal masses of anorthosite, producing an iridescent play of colors similar to adularescence. This labradorescence, or schiller effect, is the result of light diffraction within the lamellar intergrowths – fine, adjacent layers of the separate materials (lamellae) comprising the whole rock phase – created when conditions do not allow for sufficient diffusion to the materials' equilibrium composition.
The cause of this optical phenomenon is phase exsolution, or phase (state) instability, occurring in the Bøggild miscibility gap (An48-An58); under the appropriate heat and pressure conditions the separate molecular components will coexist but not mix to a solution, producing the phenomenon. 
Gemstone varieties of labradorite exhibiting a high degree of labradorescence are called spectrolite.

ATTENTION: We are aware that the shipping may appear high with a large purchase, but please understand that the shipping price is part of cost of the item. We charge $0.25 for each additional item, which can add up, because that is the fee ETSY charges us for each item sold ($0.20 plus 3.5%) so it is just an easier way for us to price the items! We could have raised the price of each item by $0.25 instead but it was just easier to do it this way! Thank you for your understanding and thank you for reading this!
