This is Spectrolite. Spectrolite is basically Labradorite but it’s a darker base color (black or dark gray), and the color spectrum that flashes is brighter and more saturated. Spectrolite was only mined one place in the world, Finland. That mine is now closed. So whatever Spectrolite stones that are cut (or pieces of rough) are out there, that’s it. No more supplies are forthcoming. The color flash area on Spectrolite is narrower than that of Labradorite. In other words, you can hold a Labradorite gem at several angles and see the color flash (Labradorescence). The angle of viewing with Spectrolite is narrower. Usually holding the stone at one angle will reveal the color. However, in many cases, you will be rewarded by rich tones and hues.

All the Spectrolite stones in this group were specially cut and cabbed. They have a very high polish rate on the top portion of the gem. It was very difficult to take photos of them since the light was always reflected on the top of the gem. I might take several photos at slightly different angles so you can see the colors. The stones are also not cut as thick (see measurements). The back of the cabochon is flat, but it is not polished.

In all cases, the cutter tried to ensure you got color flash across the entire (or at least most) of the surface of the gem in his finished product. So all cutting was well thought out, and done by a very experienced cutter in the USA.
