Cushion-cut rectangles of labradorite—a semiprecious stone with flashing metallic tints—sublimely center these Serene Labradorite Pierced Earrings. 14k gold-plated brass. Natural variations will occur.
These Serene Labradorite Pierced Earrings celebrate 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.
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.
