More About Labradorite
A member of the feldspar family, Labradorite is a beautiful gemstone that ranges in color from dark gray to gray-black with colorful iridescence or labradorescence. These lustrous metallic tints, known as schillers, are most often blue and green. The schiller effect results from the lamellar (layered) structure of this feldspar – light enters the stone and is refracted back and forth between layers.
