About The Stone
Larvikite is known by many names - Labradorite, Blue Pearl Granite, Blue Norwegian Moonstone, Marina Blue Star and more... but Larvikite is its own gemstone and is different from Labradorite that it is commonly confused with. An igneous rock only found in the Oslo-rift near Larvik, Norway, Larvikite is prized for its high polish and the silvery-blue Iridescence of its feldspar crystals. In addition to using Larvikite as a gemstone, it is popular as a facing stone in buildings - used in New York City's United Nations building, many big banks and many pubs in the U.K.
Larvikite is believed to elevate consciousness and protect your aura, keeping it clear, balanced and protected.
How To Size Your Bracelet
Using a piece of string (or fabric measuring tape), measure your wrist just above the wrist bone (towards your elbow, not your hand). This is the circumference of your wrist. Depending on the type of fit you would like, add the following to your measured wrist circumference to get a final bracelet size:
Snug fit (won't move much): add 1/4" to 1/2"
"Comfort" fit (will move, but stay above your hand): add 3/4" to 1"
Loose fit (may drape down on your hand a bit): add 1-1/4"
Pick the bracelet size closest to this final calculation. For example, if I measured my wrist as 5.75" and wanted a snug fit, I would pick either size 6 or size 6.5 as my bracelet size. If I wanted a loose fit that would hang down a bit on the top of my hand, I'd pick size 7.
This bracelet is adjustable so you can wear it at your chosen size and plus or minus a 1/2".
