This graceful Necklace features 2 strands of Labradorite Faceted Rondelles, in shimmery shades of gray. Labradorite is a gemstone that was named after Labrador in Canada, where it was found on the Isle of Paul, near Nain in 1770. It has since been found in other places, including Finland, Madagascar, and Australia. Our stones are 6.5mm in diameter, and display delicate flashes of blue iridescence. This optical effect is so unique to labradorite that it has been termed "labradorescence." The faceted cut enhances the display, reflecting light off the contoured surfaces. We've paired the Labradorite with blue and gray Czechoslovakian Glass, including 4-by-5mm gray Ovals, 6mm pale blue faceted Rounds, and 4-by-9mm midnight-blue faceted Bicones. Royal blue 3mm Seed Beads accent the larger stones. The blue and gray Czech Glass complements the Labradorite, adding refined dashes of color and sparkle. The overall effect is quite appealing; this Necklace can pair easily with jeans and a T-shirt, or shine with dressier attire. At the top of the Necklace the Labradorite transitions to gray Czech Glass Ovals, streamlining the silhouette. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Rounds and a hammered Sterling Toggle Clasp, and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 68 grams and is 27-1/4 inches long.
