Labradorite

A fairly abundant greyish mineral that shows brilliant flashes of colour (usually green, blue or red) after it is polished – a phenomenon called ‘labradorescence’. Labradorite is usually cut with a flat surface in order to highlight the flashes of colour. Labradorite was originally found along the coast of Labrador; it is also found in Newfoundland and other parts of Canada.
