Labradorite is a fairly common Feldspar, but is still very attractive when faceted. Labradorite is found from various localities, but I always marvel as transparent Feldspar from any locality, especially in stones this size. This particular stone is an attractive, light straw color gem with an "Oval" cut. The stone is nearly eye cleanm and often Labradorite can have some kind of "shiller" which is an effect often seen in these gems, so the clarity in this gem is superb. A great, large, old time Mexican Labradorite stone, which would fit nicely into a gem Feldspar suite.
