Labradorite was first discovered at the peninsula of Labrador in Canada. The most common variety of Labradorite is a dark opaque feldspar that produces lustrous metallic flashes of color when viewed at certain angles, an optical effect called schiller or labradorescence. The colorful metallic shimmer is caused from light being reflected through the gemstone's lattice distortions. The most typical color exhibited in Labradorite is bright blue. Other colors are green, yellow, red, orange and violet. Spectrolite is a variety of labradorite from Finland that displays the spectral colors most effectively in brilliant peacock hues, butterfly wing colors, or a cat's-eye effect. To bring out a specimen's true colors, Labradorite requires great cutting and polishing skills, and the best colors can be seen in low cabochon cuts.
