Intro about Labradorite cabochons
Labradorite’s have flashed the industry with its presence, anytime Blue flash is talked about its to do with Labradorite. Not even Moonstone has enough Blue flash as deep the Labradorite does. We say this because the background color of these cabochons are Dark blue, Dark black, Dark green and when it shows Blue flash on the top it gives a whole new look all together. We will talk about history at the bottom of this page, but lets talk about Labradorite cabochons. Labradorite name has derived from the dog species Labrador, a species that has black spots on white, basically mottling we call it in Gemstone terms. Since this stone was discovered long time ago (We aren’t sure of the exact date), it has caused magic in the wearers hearts, but more than that the American Jewelry industry has been rocked by these beautiful firing gemstone cabochons. These cabochons not only attract the jewelry manufacturers or designers, but they also give the investors and home decorators a great chance to use this magical gemstone that is really very inexpensive.
Types of Labradorite Cabochons – calibrated, freeform, cabochons rose cut, facetted –
The first and the very common type of Labradorite cabochons are calibrated ones, which basically are same sized cabochons. For example, 6 mm round cabochons, this is one of the most hottest selling sizes in Labradorite because of the cost and size perfectness. Now in the calibrated sizes we have mostly rounds and ovals, where as other types of shapes like Cushions, Pears we make on orders only as we have the rough to cut any wholesale Labradorite orders. Our process of making calibrated cabochons are simple, to grade the rough into different qualities and sizes. When we do the sizes we make sure that we pick the same sizes as close as possible otherwise if for example we are getting 6.50 mm rounds instead of 6 mm, we wouldn’t cut it as 6 mm but instead keep it as 6.50 mm and sell it as the freeform which is our next type.
After we sort all the rough into calibrated sizes, the remaining we make into freeform stones that we cut as it is, this type of stones have the least amount of waste because they are cut “as they were formed in rough form”. The freeform Labradorite stones are very famous for slices and single stones that make it to the market in the form of earrings or even single pendant pieces, that are one of a kind as there is no replacement for these single stones as how can we get the exact rough again, it has to be slightly different unless you are doing 100,000’s of pieces everyday, which we aren’t. We are manufacturing 1,000 pieces a day of Labradorite in our factory and so they all become one of a kind.
Our last type of cabochons is rose cut or faceted. Basically the cabochon part starts to hide in these facets and the stone usually is just called Rose cut gemstones or Facetted Labradorite gemstones. These are all the same thing, as they have a cut, just that Rose cut looks more like a rose with triangular facets next to each other forming a 2 dimensional rose, where as faceted can be irregular faceted gemstones or even regular cutting style which is rose cut mixed with any other facets that ensure maximum output.

Color chart of Blue firing Labradorite- To understand the different amounts of blue firing that is possible in the Labradorite from Gemstone cabochons, you have to understand how the rough comes out from the ground and the manufacturing involved in the process of making these different amounts of Blue Labradorite cabochons. First lets talk about the rough from the earth.
How Labradorite rough is from the mines (earth)?
The rough comes in various shades of blue (lets leave all the other colors of Labradorite aside), some of them are very minimum blue flash, some of them have medium blue flash and some of them the whole piece of rough is covered with blue flash of lab. Now this reflects exactly on the type of cabochons we are capable of producing.
How the manufacturing of Labradorite in wholesale takes place?
The manufacturing of these labs’ are a difficult job, because of the technique required to make sure that the firing comes out on the face of the gemstone and not on the sides or deep inside the stone. Highest quality is when the flash comes billowy and on the surface and visible face up.
As clearly mentioned in the above picture, the most common color of Blue labs’ are the rainbow flash which also have blue, but the lightest blue. While the highest quality is of the Billowy blue flash which basically comes only in 5% of the rough of this semi precious gemstone.

History of Labradorite – how it all started

According to history, Inuit warrior was roaming along the coast and he noticed that northern lights (some) had been trapped in the rocks then he freed these trapped northern lights. It is called “Fire stone” or “Fire rock” that time. “Labradoressence”. It is a stones with hardness at 6-6.5 at Mohs scale and comes under feldspar category. When it is mined then you can’t judge the quality in rough form and after mining when it is cut and formed to final stone then you can see the actual “Labradoressence”.
It is transparent to translucent stone, the blue labradoressence which we see, is not blue in actual but it is effect of light. When light enters in this stone and it gives blue color. Well, in this stone light plays a vital role, you will see different color effects in different level of lights.
