Joopy Gems Labradorite Freeform Cabochons
Labradorite Freeform Cabochons, assorted sizes, $9-$16

Aaaand there’s more! I came across these little beauties earlier today and thought they need to find new and happy homes. They are pretty large freeform labradorite cabochons in the 20-30 carat, 20-30mm range. Standard grade material, so inclusions, fractures and a sort of translucent dark grey body material. But the flash is amazing – there are a couple of really striking pinstripes, and that one up in the top left corner is my favourite. I keep wanting to write a series on ‘In Praise of Inclusions’ and that stone is a real case in point – lots of fine, little fractures that look like the delicate veining on a leaf, and with a superb bright gold flash. You can find these little chaps here. Prices start from $9 per stone, and they are all on a 50% discount.
