Vibrant Orange Labradorite by Nambroth Vibrant Orange Labradorite by Nambroth
This is a labradorite, polished on both sides, carefully hand wrapped in Argentium sterling silver. It's unusual to find a stone with this color orange!

Labradorite is an amazing stone that can appear dark at first, until you move it and the stone comes alive with colors flashing within. The effect is similar in appearance to opal fire. It is called chatoyancy, which is a fancy way of saying that the color 'flashes' or 'rolls' across the stone, like cat's-eye but far more vibrantly. It is a natural stone, and the effect is caused by refractive layers within the stone. It cannot be simulated or dyed to look that way!

I hand wrap these pieces with nothing more than my fingers and a tiny pair of pliers. I purchase the stones already polished from rock and gem shows.

Thanks for looking. :)



[[ Since so many ask-- yes, I do sell these on my personal site: [link] ]]

I'm sorry, you can't find it because it sold over 5 years ago. I make new ones from time to time if you want to check in, but each is one of a kind.

This popped up in my random favorites again and brought me to marvel at your work once again. By far the most impressive work I've seen. All of your work is astonishing. =)

These stones must cost you a fortune! I've never seen a lab this color before. You do such an intricate ewrap but don't overpower the stone :)
