From Finland, Spectrolite is a type of feldspar similar to Labradorite. It has a “pleochroic” flash to the feldspar crystal. This flash comes in all color but tend to mostly be blue. This is a flat cabochon with color flash on both sides in full view. I did not dome the piece for this reason. It is very nice and though small is a great value.
Visit my Sold cabochon Gallery to see past opals I have cut. You will find other examples of materials, shapes, sizes, colors, and in general see my work there. Some stones date back over 15 years in there. I don’t show everything I cut, just the ones I really liked over the years. Please let me know if you have any questions about those materials.
Its also important to visit your local rockclub if you have one near by. Its a great place to start if you are new to gems and minerals. Thank you.
