Designed by Georg Jensen c. 1909, this is a beautiful example of Georg Jensen’s earliest designs and is an original piece, bearing the early GI mark.  The labrodite stones have a remarkable play of colour known as ‘labradorescence’ and the aggregate layers refract the light as iridescent flashes.  The agate was discovered in Labradore Canada, and has long been known to the native Inuit people for the mystical and protective properties.  (www.crystalvaults.com ).
