A lavish display of gold dappled with blue above a slip of sea blue at the bottom flashes across the front of this briolette shaped polished labradorite pendant. There are a couple dark spots on the front on the left that remind me of clouds or fog rolling in. The back also has a full face of half gold, half blue, like the golden hour before sunset above water. The base color of the stone itself is a muted greyish moss green.

The pendant is suspended on a sterling silver medium sized flat cable link 16″ chain with a small lobster clasp. I can add a 2″ extension chain if requested.
