Larvikite or Black Labradorite

Larvikite or Black Labradorite

I had to find out what this beautiful stone was! The flashes of blues & silvers were stunning! :star_struck: I had recently noticed that I have quite a few :heart: heart-shaped crystals, so I kind of went looking for some. Then I got an email for a Mother’s Day coupon code to 1 of my favorite crystal shops. I happened to be looking for some more labradorite & bloodstone… I came across a gorgeous piece of Larvikite. I had never heard of it before & a quick search also brought up Black Labradorite as possibly being the “same” stone. After 3 new crystal hearts were added to my cart, I went to find out more about this striking stone.

Larvikite is sometimes referred to as Black Labradorite or Black Moonstone. Although Larvikite is related to a Feldspar, it is neither Labradorite nor Moonstone. “ Larvikite is a relatively coarse-grained anorthoclase-rich igneous rock. Anorthoclase constitutes 90 or more percent of this rock. The presence of the alternating alkali feldspar and plagioclase layers gives a characteristic silver-blue sheen (Schiller effect) on polished surfaces. ” ( Source: Larvikite gemstone information )
