Hardness: On Mohs scale of mineral hardness - grade 5-6 (1 being softest, 10 being hardest)Colour: The surface can initially appear dark and uninteresting but as soon as the light catches its surface, blues, greys, green and yellow can be seen.

How to Take Care of Your Labradorite Pendant
Labradorite gemstones should be stored inside a fabric-lined box or wrapped in a soft cloth. It is rated about 6 – 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, so they should be kept away from other gemstones and jewellery to ensure they do not get scratched by any harder gemstones or damage any that may be softer.
To clean, just wash in warm soapy water using a soft brush, rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth, we do not recommend ultrasonic cleaners or steamers. It is a good idea to remove any jewellery before doing any physical activity such as sports, housework or gardening.
