Also known as Larvikite, this beautiful jewelry-grade blue labradorite has a grey/black background with a chatoyant grey-blue flash. A type of feldspar with a Mohs hardness of 6 to 6-1/2, this striking gemstone is named for the Larvik Fjords in Norway where it was first discovered in the 1880s, and where major deposits are still found. Machine-cut and drilled for consistent size and shape.
Beads are temporarily strung with spacers to protect against chipping.
