It is a gem that has effects of adularescence, which means in mineralogy and gemology, a shimmer under the surface of the stone, due to interference at the interfaces of the internal layers.
It is a fascinating stone to look at, because it has bluish, yellow, green or red metallic reflections when moved in front of the light. This optical phenomenon is called labradorescence.
