Copper Electroformed Freeform Labradorite Necklace on Citrine Beaded Chain
The flash on this stone is nothing short of extrordinary! Labradorite was named for where it was first found, the Labrador Peninsula in Canada. Legend claims that the northern lights were trapped in the rocks along the coasts of the peninsula. A drifting Eskimo warrior found these rocks and freed the lights with his spear. Many of these lights are still trapped within the stone today, giving the stone mesmerizing shimmer and flash.

The scientific and intricate process used to add layers of lovely copper is called electroforming. This process can be unpredictable and can take hours to days to complete just one wearable. There may be small perfect imperfections in the copper and it may darken over time. Each piece has been cleansed and sealed.
