Labradorite Mineral Specimen for SaleLabradorite

 
Rocks, Minerals, and FossilsLabradorite is a calcium-rich plagioclase feldspar most often found in igneous rocks like basalt, andesite, gabbro and anorthosite.  Labradorite also occurs in gneiss produced through metamorphism of Labradorite-bearing rocks, and in sedimentary rocks derived from the weathering of other rocks that contained Labradorite.

Labradorite is well known for displaying the Schiller effect, a strong play of iridescent blue, green, red, orange, and yellow colors.  This quality, called labradorescence, results when light strikes a twinning surface within the stone and reflects from it. Different twinning surfaces within the stone reflect different colors of light, giving the stone a multi-colored appearance.

Labradorite is named after the Canadian province in which it was discovered in 1770, on Paul Island near the town of Nain, Labrador. Today it's found in various localities throughout the world; the smooth, polished Labradorite specimens on this page come from Madagascar.  (All of them display labradorescence, although some photos capture it better than others.)
