These super-flashy labradorites are to die for! They have excellent flashes of blue, and the cut is elegant and fun. They hang from hand-cut, textured, arrow-inspired components and hand forged ear wires. These earrings have been given a dark patina and polished to bring out the details. They hang 2 and 11/16" in total length. Wear these earrings for a night out, or add some magic to your daily look!
With the photos, I have tried to demonstrate the variance in flash at different angles and in different lighting, but please be aware that the flash is transient and appears with movement and changes in lighting - it is not visible 100% of the time.
Labradorite is a variety of feldspar, just like moonstone – but it is a plagioclase variety while moonstone is orthoclase. Rainbow moonstone is also a variety of labradorite. Labradorite is famous for its “flash,” or labradorescence, that can be seen when tilting the stone at different angles. This is light reflecting off surfaces where two crystals grew together. It’s named for Labrador, Canada, where it was discovered. Labradorite is not treated.
