Labradorite, also known as spectrolite or labrodite, is a member of the Feldspar Family with a Mohs Hardness of 6. Although it can be found in Newfoundland, India, Russia, Mexico, Finland, and the USA, most of today’s stone comes from Madagascar.
Labradorite appears as a grey stone but if cut correctly, the color changing “flash”, known as labradorescence , can result in iridescent flashes of brilliant blue, gold, green, or coppery red, reminiscent of the colors of a peacock. The shimmering, optical effect is known as the “ Schiller” effect. The colors do not exist in the stone but are result of “light play”.
