The tear drop shape of this Labradorite Pendant shows off the beautiful range of blues in this stone. In addition to being reminiscent of the shifting colors of water, there is a bright spot to one side, which shows gold on the front reminding one of sunlight on water. This gold spot on the front turns to deep orange on the reverse.
The smooth silver bezel wraps around the stone and transitions to a scene of the sun setting over water, and the Moon and star rising high in the early evening sky.
The deep orange patch in the stone is revealed through openwork rays on the sun just before it dips below the horizon. The rest of the back of the pendant is left as open as possible, to show of the deep blue tones of coming night. The water ripples and waves are pierced open to reveal the blue as well.
This image is meant to remind one of all the times a sunset has been viewed, and the wonder created at its shimmering effect on water and sky. To all those who have ever glimpsed the crescent moon and evening star, you will be able to recall the special feeling of coming night, relfected on water, that is so difficult to put into words.
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 smaller piece, note the size next to the penny.

Labradorite is a member of the Feldspar family and is treasured for its remarkable play of color, known as labradorescence.

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