Northern Lights Labrodorite Necklace
I have always wanted to own a piece of Labradorite, so I was very pleased to find some tear drop shaped cabs for sale at a local bead show. Feldspars are completely capitivating to me, because they seem interdimensional: when you gaze inside, you see another world. Looking into a feldspar stone like Labradorite, you almost feel like you are scrying. There is certainly something magical about the refraction of light into so many disappearing colours.
Labradorite is a very interesting stone, and it’s appropriate to work with around Canada Day because it was discovered in the province of Labrador. Eskimo legend holds that a warrior freed the northern lights from stone. The light that was not released became labrodorite.
