WHO LET THE DOGS OUT? THESE YELLOW LABRADORITE MINERS!
Yellow labradorite, despite sharing a name with one of our most beloved dog breeds, doesn’t have much in common with the adorable pups. Both are celebrated for their yellow color, were originally discovered in Labrador, Canada, and are cherished around the globe – oh, wait! Maybe these two aren’t so different after all!
One big difference in our favorite dog and favorite gem is the rarity. Labrador retrievers are one of the most popular and well-known dogs in the world. Yellow labradorite, on the other hand, is one of the rarest gems on the market.
WHY IS YELLOW LABRADORITE RARE?
A key reason for this is the delicate process used to mine them. Yellow labradorite isn’t crudely mined in mass amounts by machinery, no – it’s done by hand. Miners use artisanal mining practices, including a manual, hand-controlled pulley system to pull the gems from the ground, and other handheld tools such as shovels, hammers, and chisels.
The process to mine the delicate and iridescent feldspar is expensive and time-consuming. Not to mention, while other gemstones in the feldspar family are more common, there are relatively few of these gemstones in the world. For these reasons, the availability of yellow labradorite is limited, and it’s rarely seen in jewelry. In fact, it’s actually considered a collector’s item.
Despite all of this, Shop LC is bringing yellow labradorite to you. We recently held an event celebrating the first ever time we’ve sold it, as it was never before seen on our channel. It sold fast, but here are 10 amazing jewelry pieces to start off your collection!
