The ladies who make Labradorite Jewelery...

Leslie Collins of Lelli (St John's), Michelle Lambert of Art Sea (CBS), Nancy Rogers of NDR (Dover) and Carissa Thorne of  CC Handmade (Springdale) are our NL designers who work with this iridescent stone. And 'yes' it is true, Labradorite is the official stone for our province of Newfoundland and Labrador. It was discovered and named (in the 18th century) for the original deposit found in Northern Labrador. Aboriginal legend has it that the source of the sensational play of colours showing in the rock is from the Northern Lights that are still trapped inside. We encourage you to drop by our fine craftshop and see if you too will be captivated by the dancing aurora borealis like colours of the stone called Labradorite.
