We are working in collaboration with a specialized workshop located between Beijing and Tianjin, whose know-how is several hundred years old. We bring the carefully selected raw materials, and work the pendant together.
We are only representatives of this craft in Europe.
Labradorite is a Feldspath Plagioclase containing 50-70% calcium and 30-50% sodium. She is an intermediate member of the isomorphic series Albite-Anorthite. It is best known for its labradorescent variety whose colour scheme is caused by the interference of light on successive thin lamellar layers of sodium and calcium Feldspar. Colours vary depending on the Content of Anorthite, from blue to red, yellow and green. It also exists in transparent quality without optical effect, usually yellow to uniform beige. Native copper impurities or copper oxide introduced by treatment can alter the color (red, green, two-coloured) and/or cause an adventure effect (Sunstone).
