Comment: Labradorescence, a colorful iridescence-effect found exclusively on the surface of a specific type of feldspar from Canada produces so many variations of the so-called schiller that you may spend a collectors' lifetime until you may call yourself a connoisseur of labradorites. Some resemble the flanks of a living trout (multiply by the number of trout varieties), others remind of desert landscapes at sundowm, moon-lit forests in late autumn, or get an old surfer to recall THE perfectly breaking green-blue pacific wave, just to name a few. Now, here for the first time presented in all its beauty, enters a new dimension to the variety. Shapes and forms carved into their surfaces, say, a butterfly carved into forest colors, or a surfboard worked into Pacific's surf green-blue. Let us know your personal idea combining a color and an image, and we will make it happen. In this size, obviously, pendant material, or a bracelet for the adventurous.
P.S. Note the deep blue section in the backside image, an exception to my knowledge.
