Here is a great example of labradorite both polished and in its raw form. One side of this specimen has been polished to better showcase its beautiful array of colors. This piece is a prime example of what labradorite twinning looks like (see photos). The base has been cut flat so it displays nicely without a stand.
Labradorite is a calcium-rich variety of feldspar. First discovered in Labrador, Canada, it contains brilliant flashes of color known as "labradorescence." Occasionally these colors showcase parallel lines running down the length of the mineral. This is described as twinning. Labradorite frequently displays blues, greens, and yellows, but can also contain pinks, oranges, and violets. These specimens have been polished on one side to showcase a wide range of colors. The remaining sides have been left in their raw form.
Labradorite is a great companion to assist with change. It is used primarily for strengthening intuition.
