These iridescent Labradorite stones are named "Blue Flash Labradorite" for a reason - these stones have a stunning glow to them - with shimmers of blue and silver shining out in every direction. These small rectangular stones are faceted to catch the light and they really do flash blue!
This set is delicate and feminine with a flash of sparkle from the stones.
The stones of the necklace are strung on a Sterling Silver wire - spaced with tarnish-resistant Argentium® Sterling Silver beads.
The earring's stones are hanging from Sterling Silver ear wires - spaced with Argentium® Sterling Silver beads.
It's very difficult to catch the iridescent flashes with my camera, but you can see some spots of the blue glow! The photos don't do these justice.

About The Stone
Labradorite is named for where it was found in Labrador, a Canadian province on the Isle of Paul. Inuits once called Labradorite a "fire stone" and would use powdered forms to help cure ailments. According to Inuit legend, a warrior saw the Northern Lights trapped in the rocks and struck them with his spear to free some of the lights. Labradorite is known for its brilliant flashes of color called labradoressence - caused by lamellar twinning inside the crystal.
Labradorite is considered a tremendously spiritual stone, said to temper the negativity within ourselves.
