Labradorite Faceted Rose Cuts - Commercial Parcel Lot
Feldspars are the most widespread minerals in the earth’s crust, as well as some of the most diverse. You can pick up a rock anywhere in the world, and you’ll probably find that it contains a mineral or two from the feldspar group.
Other feldspar minerals can also show adularescence. One is a labradorite feldspar found mainly in Labrador, Canada. Another labradorite—found in Madagascar—has a multicolored adularescence over a light bodycolor. It’s known in the trade as rainbow moonstone, despite the fact that it’s actually a variety of labradorite rather than orthoclase.
Non Calibrated Goods
A calibrated gemstone is one that has been cut to fit standard size commercial gemstone jewelry mountings and settings. Examples are 7x5 mm oval shape gemstones, or a 6 mm round shape gem. Non-Calibrated gemstones are not cut to exact measurements, but they are cut to sizes that most standard size mountings can accommodate.
