Labradorite: The plagioclase feldspar with an iridescent play-of-color caused by internal fractures in the mineral that reflect light back and forth, dispersing it into different colors. This effect, known as labradorescence, gives Labradorite its appeal and fame.
Rutilated Quartz: Clear or smoky quartz with inclusions of rutile crystals. Rutile is the mineral name for natural crystals of titanium dioxide. Rutile is best known for its affect on gemstones where microscopic rutile crystals bundle so tightly that they bend light into band and star patterns. While most varieties of transparent quartz are valued most when they show no inclusions, rutilated quartz is valued specifically for the lovely patterns formed by the delicate golden needles of rutile inside it.
