    Wow!- the name Blue Pearl does a better job of expressing the beauty of this pendant. It is a lovely changing shimmery blue. But Larvakite! Larva? egh.

    or is it Larkivite? maybe a little nicer than Larva? :) Whatever you call it, this is very nice!!!

    That’s funny…I’ve always called it Larkavite because it had a nicer ring to it….until I realized I was actually reading it wrong! :-D

    Love, love, love the stone and what you have done with it!

    Larvikite…Named for the city of Larvik, Norway located in an area where the stone is found. (I checked for info in the book “Rocks, Minerals & Gemstones” by Walter Schumann.) Old teachers never retire doncha know. Here endeth the reading of the First Lesson. :D

    Elaine your beading is spectacular (as is your wire wrapping)! And thanks LRC: I mistakingly called it “Larkavite.” I so appreciate being educated! Staying tuned for more lessons… and beading.
