Stone of the Week: Labradorite

The color play in Labradorite makes it many people’s favorite stone.  I can’t argue with that.  The flashes of blue-green are gorgeous.  I love how an unassuming yellow-grey stone can explode with color if you hold it just right.  That’s a hopeful metaphor, don’t you think?

Stone of the Week: Rhodonite

Bloodstone is a great stone for this week, because not only is it the March birthstone, but if you’re in Australia or southeast Asia, you’ll get to test out it’s “sun turning” properties on the total solar eclipse coming up on the 8th.  The flatter and more polished, the better.  I’m excited for you!
