PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING
This is true spectrolite from Finland. Spectrolite is a high quality labradorite, with a black body tone. It differs from regular labradorite ( found in Canada and Madagascar). The crystal is heavier and colors are more saturated and have a greater spectrum.
The Finnish government has trademarked the term "spectrolite" and technically this name is only for labradorite from Finland.
Typical of spectrolite, the colors can be elusive. Please observe the orientation of the cabochon. It is held at about 15 to 40 degree angle. If you are familiar with directional opal, this piece is like that. When the color is not on, you will see the black background, with a silvery shimmer to it.
As a jewelry designer you will have to decide how to set this stone properly in order to get the best color. If you don't, you will get very little color.
Spectrolite rough has become very spendy and a bit difficult to get in the purple and red colors.
