Labradorite - a magical gemstone!

Labradorite is one of my favourite gemstones - I just love the magical way it interacts with the light to give flashes of blue, green or gold.
Labradorite is quite a soft gemstone, with a hardness of 6-6.5.  That means it can get scratched by dust so you need to take great care of it if it's in a ring.  It is very easy for it to crack along the two cleavage plains due to the crystal structure so you need to be careful of knocking Labradorite too.
The play of light effect is called Labradoresence (a kind of iridescence) and is due to the way light is reflected off the crystal structure.  It usually has a grey /translucent base colour and the flashes of colour are blues, greens, purple and gold.
