Daphne and Leland Boone's Mountain-lion
(puma, panther or cougar) has been carved from peach labradorite. The colors in labradorite are not actually present in stone rather they are the result of light play within the stone. Labradorite is a feldspar with a crystalline structure that forms very thin compacted layers. When light hits the surface of the stone, it travels down through the layers which reflect, refract and diffuse the white light, absorbing some colors and reflecting others which we see as the flash on the surface of the stone. Usually we see blues and greens, but on the rare occasion we see copper and peach-like hues. Eyes are from red coral inlays. About 2 1/8" long, 1 1/8" wide and 1 3/8" tall.
