• Pink Labradorite & garnet bare copper pendant


    This item is out of stock

    This labradorite and bare copper pendant forms part of the T's Statement Jewellery Collection.  This stunning piece of labradorite has been lovingly wrapped with bare copper wire and adorned with garnet and has then had a patina applied to oxidise the copper and cause it to darken.  The wire has then been sealed to prevent to patina from rubbing off on the skin.

    Labradorite is a unique gemstone in the colours that can appear within it. Pink is one of the rarer colours to be seen in labradorite and the rich colour of the garnet heightens the colour.

    I have used bare copper wire on this piece which i have then patinad to give the copper an aged look with hints of pink in it.

    A little bit of history, myth and legend

    Labradorite is a member of the feldspar family and is know for its play of colour across the gemstone known as labradorescence.  When first seen the stone is a grey-green colour which can turn to copper, blue, green, coppery red when the stone catches the light.  The most commonly seen colour is blue and called shiller.  Labradorite was first discovered in Labrador Canada in 1770 by Moravian missionaries who named it after the area it was found in.  There is great deal of myth and legend associated with labradorite the most commonly know being that the Inuit people claim that labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis.  It is also thought to awaken one's awareness of inner spirit and intuition.
