No, despite the other stuff, which is just a google along the way and was in favour of larkivite being waterly ! Just a diversion.

The link under that convinced me. That is how it looks, in shadow and in light.

r, a scientist, well, sort of, on a good day, perhaps, omg need therapy.  Time for a holiday! In Labrador would be nice, with a hammer.

guess what the official name for Labradorite is? No prizes as the answer was made available early on in this thread.

sorry Leni, I did not spell wrong but did not know the English spelling: feldspar (E) is feldspat (G)
If I do not know the right translation E/G here - I dare to submit German and reckognize that everybody understands - like Anorak  8)  :lol:  :P

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Sorry Leni, no gain - the answer is Larvikite.

Here are the promised pictures of my larkovite and labradorite.
"dark emerald pearl granite", (the big piece)
"light blue pearl granite" (the small sliver) and
labradorite (the pendant - both cabochons)

It is hard to capture their true beauty on camera, particularly the labradorite, but should be enough for you to decide about your fish!

Many thanks, it is labradorite.
I also went to a crystal shop and had a look round and it all convinces me that's what it is. Now I just need to find out when and where it was made.
Cheers Ruth.
