pendant hand made by Skye
Spectrolite is a very high grade of dark based labradorite
found only in Finland. The name
"Spectrolite" is a trade name given to this material by the Finns,
and only this material can truly be called Spectrolite.
majority of Labradorite that one sees commercially now is from Madagascar.
While this material is often very beautiful, it is usually translucent and
generally shows a lot of pitting and fractures, although I have found some
to be very good quality. The Finnish material is dense, dark black, and much
more consistent. It is also much more beautiful. I just received an import directly from
Finland of the most extraordinary Spectrolite gem material I have ever seen.
I am simply in love with it. It has been very difficult to find material of
any quality let alone the "jaw dropping" beauty of this material. Blue,
Red, Green, Gold,
and PURPLE! How often have you seen Purple
Fire in Spectrolite? Don't let these gems slip by. Also, if you have not
seen spectrolite before, please understand it's fire is very
directional and dependant on light.
