Labradorite beads are usually grey in colour with a lovely play of colours known as 'labradorescence'. This occurs when the light refracts inside the labradorite stone. Moonstone is a variety of labradorite displaying a high degree of labradoescence. This beautiful effect may explain why labradorite is said to be a 'bringer of light'. Use labradorite beads for jewellery designs with a fantasy or mystical quality for stunning effects.
