Abalone is a member of the Gastropod (sea snail) family. Abalone shells have been used by seaside cultures for their unique coloring and iridescence in ornamental objects dating back at least 75,000 years. Today, Abalone is considered an Organic Gem.
Labradorite is a feldspar mineral of the plagioclase series that is most often found in mafic igneous rocks. Some Labradorite exhibit a strong play of iridescent blue, green, red, orange, and yellow colors, sometimes called flash. Labradorite is so well known for these spectacular displays of color that the phenomenon is known as "labradorescence." Specimens with the highest quality labradorescence are often selected for use as gemstones. _________________________________________________________________________
It is recommended that you remove your jewelry prior to sleeping, bathing, exercising, or cleaning with chemicals. Each piece has been sealed with a non-toxic jewelry lacquer. You may gently clean your piece with mild soap and water but never use chemicals or other types of cleaners because this can damage the gemstones and remove the patina on the piece. Jewelry should be stored away from natural sunlight and heat in a protective jewelry box (like the one provided).
