Labradorite Cabochon 3.6cm
Labradorite Round Cabochon Large, crystal for sale from Madagascar. This splendid 21gram Labradorite Cabochon was hand made in the United Kingdom in our workshop. It was made from Labradorite we sourced in Madagascar. These cabochons are quite large pieces with rich deep colours much different to the usual cabochons on the market place and are very unique. We have obtained an excellent finish on the surface that has been created by using many grades of diamond wheels until the desired polish is achieved. This beautifully tactile cabochon is of a very high grade. Excellent Labradorescence is shown also known as the schiller effect which is the stones famous property. When exposed to the light the gem becomes a shimmering tapestry of colour. The natives of Pauls island off the coast of Labrador have told the story of Labradorite for generations. The tale recounts a legendary Inuit warrior the first to discover that the Aurora Borealis had been stolen from the sky and imprisoned in the gem known as Labradorite, smashing the stone with his spear he returned the northern lights to their home, but some light remained eternally encased in the crystal. As legend has it this is how the phenomenon of Labradoresence came to be. This cabochon is ideal for a jeweller, collector or healer.
