Today I Like ... Labradorite

Did you ever go through the classic gemstone phase? I did. I was full-on obsessed with buying bags of minerals and tumbled gemstones and studying guidebooks and memorizing their names. I still have all of my gemstones, which I have gathered like a mini natural history museum display

Lately, I've been spotting lots of labradorite jewelry and I can't help but love it. It looks like the waters of Bora Bora, and I love the depth and variance in each stone. 

Labradorite occurs in igneous rock and is commonly found in Labrador, Canada. Here are some gorgeous examples of jewelry using the stone:
