Labradorite is a plagioclase feldspar, a sodium calcium aluminium silicate with a hardness of 6 to 6.5. Its crystal structure is triclinic, usually in complex aggregates. Its name is derived from the Labrador peninsula in Canada, where the stone was first found in 1770. It is treasured for its remarkable play of color (labradorescence), which shows vivid flashes of green, blue, gold, orange, red and sometimes violet. Labradorite is found in Canada, Madagascar, Mexico, Russia and the United States. In the 1940s Labradorites were discovered in Finland that exhibited the entire color spectrum, and these were name Spectrolite.
