Polished Labradorite Cabochons.
Chatoyant Stones for Resin Art
These crystal stones may be more readily associated with standout jewellery pieces such as broaches, cuff-links, boutique clothing buttons and large finger rings. Nevertheless we feel they will look awesome in art and nowhere better to put them than in resin art.
Not all the stones we supply are jewellery quality. Some have imperfections such as fault lines. These are sold for use in art (predominantly for resin art). The size, colour and patterns vary considerably from stone to stone.
Labradorite Very Simply
Labradorite is a stone type in the same family as moonstone. Once shaped and polished it is well known for its iridescent appearance. This stone "plays with light" which in crystal terms is known as Chatoyancy.
It is classified as a plagioclase and “calcium sodium” feldspar; moonstone is an orthoclase and “potassium sodium” feldspar. This is why moonstone and labradorite are “sister” stones… they are in the same family (feldspar) but gemologically they are different. The chemical formula is ((Ca,Na)(Al,Si)4O8).
Like Gallets, Cabochons are individually hand cut or machined, rounded and polished. Unlike Gallets, Cabochons have one flat surface and one rounded surface.
These Labradorite Cabochons range in size. All are about 5mm thick and range in length from 25-40mm. They all have a flat surface (bottom) and rounded surface (top). The dominant colours that the stones display are a wide range of golds, blues, greens and greys.
We supply packs of 10 and trays of 60 stones. The colours and sizes of stones is randomly selected but each order is guaranteed to have a range of colours and sizes.
They create awesome effects in resin art and other projects. The flat side makes them thin enough to incase with resin and easy to secure onto flat bases. Some of the stones are jewellery quality but this is not guaranteed.
