Ema Eggs

We have seen different online sellers offering these “eggs”, and often the story that goes with them has nothing to do with reality.

This is Labradorite from Madagascar. The piece is not a natural shape as in a nodule, but is ground into this very interesting and pleasing shape which resembles what are often called “Window Stones”. The more common Window Stones (or Seer Stones) usually come from Brazil and normally are Quartz.

There is only one company in the world which produces these Labradorite eggs, and we got ours directly from the source. The reason why they are referred to as Ema, or sometimes Emma Eggs, is that the outside part of the stone is thought to resemble the shell of the Emu egg. The Emu is the largest bird native to Australia.

Whatever this Labradorite is called, and however it is formed, these Ema eggs are just gorgeous, really pleasing in the hand, sure-fire attention grabbers, and make great gifts.
