Paula says -

"Labradorite stone really is amazing. At a casual glance this handsome bear by Abby Quam Panteah is a subdued dark gray hue, with a very precisely inlaid turquoise heart line. But when the light hits the right side just so a patch of brilliant blue with golden border appears like magic. Very special."
