Description

    Labradorite Free-Form
    Madagascar

    This free-form sculpture is almost electric and lights up by way of "labradorescence," an optical phenomenon created by light reflecting off submicroscopical planes which are oriented in one direction. Bright flashes of blue pulsate throughout the surface of this highly polished piece. This prized material exhibits varying shades of blues, mixed with shimmering purple, green and yellow which rest on a complimentary gray and black surface. The color pops off the calming gray background, and, depending on the light in which it is viewed, a new patch of color becomes evident. The bottom of this sculpture has been cut flat for easy display. This amazing organic sculpture is in great condition and should be displayed in the forefront of any room needing a pop of color.
    Overall Measurements: 11.42 x 3.94 x 12.99 inches (29.00 x 10.00 x 33.00 cm)
    Offered at no reserve.

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
