The figuring on this piece of Labradorite is reminiscent of the shadow of a tree branch. You can almost see the shape move as you tip the stone this way and that to catch the light.
To enhance the feeling, the reverse of the pendant has a pierced on back to reveal the stone's color, and is carved with a strong leafy branch. The leaves are a direct reference to growth, to being vigorous and strong.
A single, shining star and delicate crescent moon share space with the growing tree, whose branch makes such a lovely image on the front. The crescent moon is symbolic of the cycles of chain, and the shining star is the beacon of your direction, always at your own true north. This pendant honors your zest for life and the strength of your continuing growth.
The piece is one-of-a-kind and lovingly made. The bail, where the chain goes through, is hand twisted wire, which forms a beautifully detailed and secure loop to hang the pendant from the chain.
This is a medium size piece, note the size next to the penny.

Sometimes Labradorite shows a rare flash of coppery red or brilliant purple.
