A cushion-cut rectangle of labradorite—a semiprecious stone with flashing metallic tints—sublimely centers the pendant of this Serene Labradorite Necklace. 14k gold-plated brass curb chain, pendant and lobster clasp. Natural variations will occur.
This Serene Labradorite Necklace celebrates the many labradorite specimens and gems in our collections, including a spectacular 810 carat labradorite carving acquired in 1988 by our National Gem Collection at our National Museum of Natural History. One of the greatest collections of its kind, the National Gem and Mineral Collection includes over 375,000 individual specimens and treasured jewelry pieces.
16"l. with 1.5"l. pendant and lobster clasp.
An important feldspar gemstone, labradorite's lovely iridescence arises from light diffracting off closely spaced layers of feldspar crystals. As the stone is rotated, flashes of blue, green, yellow, and red are displayed. Labradorite is named for Labrador where it was first discovered in 1770.
