First discover in the Labrador peninsula of Canada (hence the name), this unique member of the feldspar family remains a sought after stone worldwide. Labradorite is a natural gemstone that is in fact a Plagioclase Feldspar. It has a chemical composition of potassium, calcium, aluminum, and silicon-oxide. It has a Mohs rating of 6.0-6.5 and is not color enhanced. Labradorite is usually found with a grey body color and is cut into cabochons that will display "labradorescent colors". These colors can vary but are usually blue and green. The phenomenon is caused by interference of light reflecting off finely layered structure within the gemstone. The same phenomenon causes the play of color in opals. Labradorite is mined in Canada, Finland, and Russia. These stones come from Russia. If you love a "mysterious" gem then labradorite is for you!
