Mystical glowing labradorite and rainbow moonstone briollettes are wire wrapped in sterling silver and hung on cable chain in this woodsy-rustic design.
Labradorite (faceted, natural): about 16 mm
Moonstone (smooth, natural): about 10 mm
All the sterling silver elements have been oxidized and polished to bring out the texture and antiqued look. The design features hand forged clasp embellished with moonstone beads.
PLEASE NOTE: Labradorite is a light to dark gray stone producing an iridescent play of colors for which it is valued. This play of colors can change depending on the light and angle at which it is viewed. It can range from the most common green/blue, through purple/pink, to yellow/orange. Similarly moonstone and sunstone can range in the way they reflect light.
"Labradorite is a member of the Feldspar family and is treasured for its remarkable play of color, known as labradorescence. The stone, usually gray-green, dark gray, black or grayish-white, is composed in aggregate layers that refract light as iridescent flashes of peacock blue, gold, pale green, or coppery red. The predominant blue varies within the light, displaying hues from deepest blue to various shades of pale, almost blue-green. It was first discovered in Labrador, Canada, by Moravian missionaries in 1770 who named it for the area... Rarer varieties of Labradorite include Golden Labradorite, a transparent gold or champagne-color, and Spectrolite, an intense variety displaying the entire color spectrum, discovered in Finland in the 1940s."
"Moonstone is the most well-known gemstone of the feldspar group. Named for its glowing color sheen that resembles the moonlight, Moonstone can belong to several different members of the feldspar group, especially Orthoclase and Oligoclase. Moonstone displays a unique play of color known as adularescence. This effect is in the form of a moving floating light or sheen. This phenomenon is caused by structural anomalies within the crystal formation. Greater transparency in Moonstone is more desirable, and the more transparency it has, the more valuable it is. The color of the stone also has an impact on its value. Moonstones with a bluish color sheen are very much in demand and are more valuable then the other types. [Source: minerals.net]
