Labradorite / Indigo Granite

Labradorite is a popular gemstone with blue-green-purple irridescence. It is a member of the feldspar family, the same class of minerals as sunstone and moonstone. Labradorite is named for Labrador, Canada, where it was first found, but it is mostly collected now from Madagascar. This labradorite has beautiful irridescence and in transmitted light, it is orange.

Indigo granite is not really granite at all. It is multiple crystals of labradorite and is truly the rock called gabbro or anorthosite. These rocks form in the oceanic crust, as opposed to granite, which forms the continental crust.

Please enlarge and view the photographs for more detailed views. Shown wet to simulate polish. As with all natural rock, there may be fractures or pits to seal or work around. Each slab has the approximate dimensions listed. I use the longest and widest point and the thinnest, it’s not averaged.

If you like this material you may also like sunstone and moonstone.

We have worked hard with the lighting and the settings on the camera so that the colors are very accurate. Individual settings may affect color viewing on various devices and I cannot predict what your device will do, but on my computer, they’re dead on for color. I appreciate your business!
