Labradorite Freeform 10.5cm
Labradorite Freeform Shape, crystal for sale from Madagascar. This gorgeous 10.5cm tall Labradorite Freeform displays beautiful gold and blue colours shining from within the stone. Labradorite displays a unique effect called labradorescence (also known as the Schiller Effect), which is the stone's famous property. When exposed to the light, the gem becomes a shimmering tapestry of colour. The natives of Paul's Island off the coast of Labrador have told the story of Labradorite for generations. The tale recounts the story of a legendary Inuit warrior who discovered that the Aurora Borealis had been stolen from the sky and imprisoned in the Labradorite gem. Legend says that he smashed the stone with his spear, returning 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. Hand selected by ourselves in Madagascar, this freeform is of the highest grade and its beauty will enchant you.
