Labradorite is a fascinating stone which flashes different colours depending on how the light strikes it.  It is notoriously difficult to photograph to capture these flashes.  This flash is called Labradorescence or Schiller.


Labradorite is found on Paul's Island near Nain in Labrador, Canada. It has also been found in Norway, Finland and in larger quantities in  Madagascar, China, Australia, Slovakia and the USA
