Product Story

Labradorite occurs in metamorphic and igneous rocks
and is in the feldspar category. The name is derived
from the main source for this gemstone, which is
Labrador, Canada. The ground color is dark smoke
grey and when light strikes it in a particular direction, it
displays striking rainbow-colored reflections. These
flashes of violet, blue, green or even orange and red
are known as labradorescence. Spectrolite is the trade
name for a brightly colored variety of labradorite found
in Finland.

The warm red of the garnet illuminated Noah's Ark.
Garnets have been known to Man for thousands of
years. Noah, it is said, used a garnet lantern to help
him steer his ark through the dark night. Garnets are
also found in jewelry from early Egyptian, Greek and
Roman times. Many an early explorer and traveller liked
to carry a garnet with him, for the garnet was popular
as a talisman and protective stone, as it was believed to
light up the night and protect its bearer from evil and
disaster. Today, science has taught us that the garnet's
proverbial luminosity comes from a reflective index
