An Afternoon spent with Beautiful Labradorite

Spent the afternoon polishing some of the recently acquired Labradorite. It was great fun and I am quite pleased with the results :-)

One face polished and rest of the rock left natural. There is amazing Labradorescence in both polished and rough sides. 
I also cabbed a couple of slices of Indian Moonstone. They are OK but not the best result. It could be something to do with the quality of rough stock we have at present. Its not brilliant. I will carry on trying for better results and post pics when I am satisfied with the pieces.
