Feldspar is a group of minerals belonging to the tectosilicate family, which is subdivided into three types and two classes/series. Labradorite, juste as sunstone, belongs to the plagioclase series.
Labradorite has a characteristic iridescence that is called adularescence, which is caused by the light refraction in the microstructure. The name Labradorite comes from its finding site, viz. Labrador/Canada. It is said that this gemstone promotes friendship.
For a stunning effect match your dune beads' Labradorite with our lovely Czech beads in blue (Capri blue, London blue topaz, aqua) and green-blue (emerald, Celadon) and counterbalance them with a few oranges/amber and/or red beads. Compliments guaranteed.
Amazonite is a microcline and belongs to a different (alkali feldspar) series. Although it is not found in the Amazon area, it takes its name from the Amazon River. It is a light green, green-blue feldspar; its color is due to small lead impurities. Dune beads' Amazonite has a silky or silvery sheen.
It seems that Amazonite balances between the feminine and masculine energies and opens the door to emotions. It is a stone that helps to see both sides of an issue and that promotes artistic excellence.
Moonstone on the other hand is composed of two types of feldspar and presents the same adularescence as labradorite.
