Freeform Labradorite Sculpture with Flashes of Green and Blue from Madagascar
Labradorite is a feldspar mineral of the plagioclase series that is most often found in mafic igneous rocks such as basalt, gabbro, and norite. It is also found in anorthosite, an igneous rock in which labradorite can be the most abundant mineral.
Some specimens of labradorite exhibit a schiller effect, which is a strong play of iridescent blue, green, red, orange, and yellow. This specimen shows blues and greens and yellows. Labradorite is so well known for these spectacular displays of colour that the phenomenon is known as "labradorescence."
