purple labradorite scalloped necklace

0.00

A (rare and collectible-quality) piece of Labradorite that flashes deep purple, violet, and blue rests within a fine silver scalloped bezel, atop a hand-stamped scalloped sterling silver backplate and border. My maker's mark and .925 are included on the back. All jump rings have been soldered closed for durability. The whole necklace measures approximately 10 inches in length, with the pendant measuring around an inch in length and width. It has been given a black patina and then sanded and brought to a soft, satin finish.

Labradorite was first discovered in the late 1700's in Labrador, Canada. Since then, deposits have been noted in Finland, Russia, Australia, Mexico, United States and Madagascar. It is said that according to Eskimo Indian legend, the northern lights were freed from Labradorite. 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, coppery red, or purple, however, true purple flash is quite rare.
