Stone Pendant Labradorite. Labradorite is my obsession, and can be one of the most frustrating stones for me to work with.

With Labradorite, the color comes from how. Labradorite is my obsession, and can be one of the most frustrating stones for me to work with. I look at the rough stone, see flashes of beautiful color, and then try to figure out how I can shape the stone where the color will show to the best effect. With Labradorite, the color comes from how light hits and reflects off the crystals and layers of the stone, rather than the stone being that color itself... if you hold a piece of Labradorite up to the light, you will see what I mean. It is a challenge to shape and polish it, since sometimes it's just the surface crystals that hold the ability to reflect light in such a way as to give it the beautiful color, and grinding to get a smooth surface to polish removes them; or sometimes the angle the stone has to be held in order for the color to show makes for an impossible shape to work with. I can start out with a stone showing remarkable color, and end up with one with no color at all. Or, I can start out with a stone with no color, but somehow hit on the right shape, expose the surface just right at the right angle, and suddenly the color can flood out.。All the pendants I offer started out as rough stones, which I ground, shaped and polished by hand using a Dremel Tool, or the Hi-Tech Cabber I recently added. Because they are not cut and polished using professional equipment, there are variations in shape and may be some surface imperfections, especiall;y in the ones done using the Dremel. These do not detract from the overall beauty of the stone, as can be seen in the pictures. 。There is something about getting up close and personal with a rough stone, starting out with no idea at all of where you are going together, and watching it take on whatever shape it ends up taking. I never have a clear idea of what the stone will be like when I first start working with it, but just hope that I will be able to bring out the beauty and personality that each stone has. 。 。
