Labradorite often displays a beautiful iridescent array of colors which can move as the bead is rotated. Labradorite gemstones usually have a dark base color with metallic-looking color flashes of blue, green, yellow, and red. This iridescent effect is commonly known as labradorescence and is named after this stone. It is caused by internal fractures that reflect light back and forth, dispersing it into different colors. Labradorite is often heavily flawed with internal dark lines and streaks; stones that are clean of flaws are rare. Some stones have a greater labradorescence effect then others. Care should be taken when working with Labradorite as it is sensitive to pressure and can easily crack or chip.
