Labradorite Slabs

I am considering offering Labradorite slabs soon in our shop.

These will be offered in a rough finished form for use by Lapidaries to create their own cabochons.

The rough slabs would be approximately 6mm thick and would vary is other dimensions according to the rough it was cut from.

I can also offer these Labradorite slabs with one face polished for display purposes or I can create completely finished cabochons.

The finished Labradorite cabochons would be ideal for use by jewellery designers and could be custom made if required.

However, before I embark on this project I would like to gauge the interest in the UK market.

I am aware that many Lapidaries own smaller rock saws and are limited in what they can do with rough by the size of their saw. However, with the slabs I am proposing they would be able to be trimmed on a smaller saw as well.

Please let me know if you would be interested in Labradorite slabs as described above by posting a comment.

    Good morning Garry,

    thanks for dropping by, unfortunately out material is only big enough for jewellery makers, we do not have items as big as you are looking for. to be honest I am not sure where to look for what you are after.

    Best regards


  1. We are looking for 40mm thick polished Labradorite Lemurian Granite or Labradorite Madagascar Granite slabs and are hoping that you may have some in stock.

    Could you please let us know or if you know of a similar granite in 40mm thickness.

    Best regards

  2. I will be working on some Labradorite slabs over the weekend and am sure I can produce what you described.

    I will post some pictures on the blog early next week for you to have a look at.

    Best regards

    I was in dorset last week – lulworth cove – and at the rock and fossil shop there they had some labradorite specimens slabs with one side polished. I wanted to buy one but the silly shopkeepers hadn’t @put them on the system’ and so couldn’t sell me one! I have searched the web for a place to get some so if you are offering I’m interested!

  3. Hi Paula,

    I have just slabbed two nice lumps of Labrodorite and I will post some pictures of it in due course and let you know where to find them.

    We have just spent the last two days rebuilding our workshop, but now it’s all up and running again.

    Best regards


  4. Hi,

    I would be interested in buying slabs (any) on a periodic base. I have a trim saw but it struggles to cut.

    Thanks in advance.
