Labradorite and Kyanite Pendant set in Sterling Silver

Inside diameter of bail approximately 8mm

Labradorite is a variety of feldspar that displays a phenomenon called “labradorescence”- a spectral wash of color that changes upon the viewing angle which is a result of a crystal inclusion growth known as twinning.  Different lamellar (microscopically thin) surfaces reflect different colors to the observer, resulting in iridescent and often metallic colors that are the signature of Labradorite.

Kyanite is a silicate rich mineral rarely found in gem material quality.  Kyanite’s blue is entirely natural, and in the best specimens is a lovely denim blue usually found in sapphires.  The mineral has two distinct hardnesses in perpendicular directions, making it a unique and unusual semi-precious gemstone used in jewelry.
