Larvikite is a kind of granite that is only found near the town of Larvik, Norway. It contains large crystals of feldspar, which are responsible for the schiller effect much like in labradorite. In fact, larvikite is sometimes called "blue labradorite" though technically it's not a feldspar mineral. As granite, it has a popular and practical use: kitchen counter tops. Larvikite is a popular choice for counter tops, and it's reasonable for one to pause to consider the transition between kitchen material and jewelry item. Lucite is another example of such a dual-purpose material. Unlike lucite, larvikite has substantial heft so this is not a lightweight necklace! At 20" it is a good statement piece, and the flat stones drape well. Cost: $82.00 USD
