The never ending paradoxical surprises hidden by Mother Nature show that laying under her rugged matrix exterior, an abundance of exquisite beauty exists. One should have no doubt of that after seeing an amazing, polished Labradorite specimen. Labradorite is in the feldspar family of minerals along with moonstone and sunstone. Labradorite originally came from the northeastern Canadian province of Labrador. Today it is found predominantly in Madagascar, though a prominent variety known as spectrolite is found in Finland. Originally Spectrolite was a trade name used only to refer to material from Finland. However, the term Spectrolite has been expanded to include Madagascar Spectrolite.
Due to the rise in COVID cases, by law newer restrictions need to be put in place at our shop. Customer traffic is now limited to 15 customers in the main retail area.
Face covering & use of hand sanitizer is required when entering the shop.
The museum area will now be used as a waiting area, and limited to 8 people. We ask that people please not come in with large groups, and please limit their stays to under an hour, so others can have the opportunity to also do their shopping. We will also soon install an excellent outdoor heater, to make it much more comfortable for those who wish to wait outside. Thank you all for your continued support and understanding, during these difficult times.
Together, we'll get through this!
