Labradorite gemstone egg. This hen's egg measures 48 x 35 mm and is a playful alternative to a chocolate Easter egg. From Cassandra's Classic Collection.
Extremely fine alternating layers of albite and orthoclase feldspar cause a magical reflection of light within moonstone to give its blue to white 'moon-like' shimmer and translucency. The name for this 'adularescence' comes from the Adula mountain range where moonstones were first found in Switzerland. A moonstone placed under a pillow is said to bring beautiful dreams, especially to those born in June.
All Cassandra Goad Jewellery is designed and made in our workshops in London.
Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra travels the world to source beautiful gemstones, either in the rough or cut form.
The craftsman works as an artist recreating the design in metal. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
