I've just finished my newest creation, Labradorite Ripple. I was enchanted by the pattern Regal Reiteration in the December 2008 issue of Bead and Button and decided to adapt it a little to accommodate a large labradorite bead pendant I had.
Unfortunately a much better camera and light system, plus more photography know how is needed to catch the chatoyance of the Labradorite.
I found this description of Labradorite at Shamans Crystal.co.uk.
"The magicians stone, or the dark side of the moon. This crystal is for transformation of the self. It humbles the ego and reveals the hidden areas of negativity that we all engage in; power dramas and subtle power games that we play in relationships of any kind. It brings to light areas which have been hidden, allowing for more to be understood. Freezes your actions in Meditation; that is slows anger, ego projection and allows the user to see what is present, as is. Anti- Ego Consciousness, Anti-Arrogance, Anti Illusion, Installs humility, anti-haste. Encourages stability in the self, grounding and centering, places the consciousness closer to the true self expression. Good for people nearing the end of the Saturn or Plutonian return. Reveals hidden talents and abilities held within the shadow self for use now. Encourages knowledge and wisdom of the self; purely, and therefore is a means to growth of the personality. Why is it called the dark side of the moon? Because it reveals that which is present but can not be seen by the light of the conscious mind without reflection."
