About Labradorite

Labradorite is named after its location of discovery on the Isle of Paul, near Nain, Labrador, Canada. It was discovered there in 1770 by a Moravian missionary.
It occurs translucent in dark grey to black-grey colours. The optical phenomenon of labradorescence is an iridescent effect parallel to the cleavage planes and is caused by interference of light at sub microscopical exsolution lamellae. 

Facts:

  • Mohs hardness: 6 to 6.5
  • Mineral: Feldspar-Group
