The  pear shaped Labradorite cabochon used in this piece is 1" (2.5cms) at its widest point and 1"(2.5cms) long. It has a very pronounced glow in the blue/green range and packs a punch much greater than its size. The Labradorite has been bezel set in sterling silver and then embroidered with a range of seed and silver beads  in sympathetic colours to enhance the gemstone. The pendant hangs from  a seed beaded rope with sterling silver tubes and finished with a sterling  silver clasp. 

Labradorite is a magical stone, which displays an iridescent optical effect. According to  Inuit legend,  the Northern Lights had been trapped inside the stone and were only released when a warrior broke the stones with a spear. It was believed that any stones which remained unbroken continued to reveal  the entrancing  glowing colours of the Northern Lights  a glow which is now  known as labradorescence. 

 It  was first described by geologists in the 1770's and  was named after  the site in which it was originally found - Labrador in Canada although it is now mined elsewhere too. Labradorite can display a full spectrum of colours, with many stones revealing a blue and green sheen. 

This necklace is 18"(45cms) in length and has a sterling silver clasp.
