Organic shape meets extraordinary color in the labradorite 7x12mm faceted nugget beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these beads have a very rock-like appearance thanks to the faceted nugget shape and the marbled gray coloring. However, upon closer inspection you can see the shining iridescent colors that come from within. Labradorite is named for Labrador Island in Canada, where it was first discovered. Now it is mined in Canada, Madagascar, the Ukraine, Australia, Mexico, Norway and the USA. Labradorite is believed to detoxify the body and slow the aging process. Use with natural tones to create an earthy design with just a hint of magical color.
