LUSH NO. 5
Labradorite is a stunner. It is on the plagioclase side of the feldspar family, meaning it has more sodium and calcium than potassium in its tectosilicate makeup.
Feldspars are the most abundant group of minerals on Earth’s crust, so you are in good company. The shine and light bouncing off from within from these mischievous stones is called Schiller. By catching the light it transforms it into something wonderful.
These beauties clock in at just about 2 3/4 inches in length. Surprisingly lightweight.
