Hi Folks, Can anyone educate me on the relationship or differences
between Labradorite and Spectrolite? Is Labradorite just Spectrolite
found in Labrador? Sinkankas’ lapidary book only refers to
Labradorite (under feldspar), and I find no reference to Spectrolite.
He does refer to Labradorite being found in places other than
Labrador, but of course, this book is from the '60s, and nomenclature
could have evolved since then. Which one is the stuff found in
Scandinavia? The names aren’t interchangeable, are they?
Thanks for any clarification!
All the best,
