Larvikite

The color is grey/silver and the mineral exhibits flashes of silver and blue in the light. A Labradorite native to Norway. Some people believe larvikite to be good for softening warriors and helping dispel female anger. A psychic facilitator. A shaman's crystal.

Some believe Larvikite to be a gateway to the mystical nature of the moon. It is helpful in meditation, and can increase our compassion.

A story about larvikite, which I have been unable to verify, holds that larvikite first came on to the market as the result of a chance request made of a Norwegian group corresponding with the organizers of a World's Fair held in the 1890s. According to that story, each country planning to have an exhibit or otherwise participate in the fair's activities was asked to send two of its decorative facing stones, to be judged by a panel of architects. Apparently at that time, Norway was only producing one facing stone, so the national committee -- not wanting to admit it -- asked Waldemar C. Brögger, Professor of Petrology at the University of Oslo, to suggest a second rock that could be appropriately prepared and sent to the fair. Brögger is said to have answered, with no hesitation, that he thought the rock that winked at him in the moonlight as he rode in his buggy beside exposures along the La(u)rvik Fjord would be a good choice. Thus, a slab of this rock was prepared, transported, displayed at the fair AND voted the finest rock exhibited. -- True or not, La(u)rvikite has subsequently become a widely used decorative and facing stone, and today it can be seen here and there throughout the world.

All bead necklaces are finished with black satin cord in your choice of overall length from 18" to 24". All wire wrapped pendants are available on 24" or 30" black satin or black leather cords-your choice.

The gemstone beads and pendants we use are all natural. People who love natural stone jewelry accept and relish the fact that natural stone is not a sterile gem quality, but shows the variations and adverse climatic conditions under which it was created. In any natural stone there will be imperfections if viewed from a gemstone mindset. Natural stone is beautiful and unique because of its often rough or scarred appearance.
