LARVIKITE

Natural piece

Larvik, near Oslo, Norway

When cut and polished, larvikite is one of the world’s most attractive decorative stones.  It is a variety of syenite only found around the town of Larvik in Norway.
 
It displays a beautiful iridescence on polished surfaces, caused by optical interference within the feldspar crystals.  A similar effect is found in the variety of feldspar known as Labradorite. 
  
Larvikite is used extensively to decorate buildings and shop fronts in town centres throughout the UK.
  
This is a fine, natural, unpolished specimen
