Hi all! Can anyone tell me if there is a difference between 80104 and 51804? They both appear to be faceted labradorite stones...

listing for 80104:

listing for 51804:

Labradorite is a natural stone, so each bead is different. It is one of those things it is really better to pick out in person. Labs vary in colour, pale to dark, blue to brown to gray, and with differing degrees of 'flash' in golden or blue tones.

The seller named collectatroll is using the TB stock photo for the bead, so there's now way of knowing what type of lab you might get.
The other seller appears to be using her own photo, presumably of the specific bead she's selling, but no way to really know, since she doesn't say. She or he, I don't know!

I waited to buy labs until I could find one in person at a dealer's store.

Okay, thanks for the advice! I will add that to the list to the ones I need to go the store for Razz But as far as you know, is there only one TB faceted lab (with variations between them obviously)? I was just confused why they were listed under two different codes.

Where in Ohio are you- north/south/east/west??

There are plenty of Ohio Trollies here that we could point to a good LD if needed.

I don't know about the different codes. severinom1059, the Italian seller, may be using their own inventory code. Or it could just be a typo.

Thanks all! I am in central Ohio. When I went to TB universe there were a couple shops out by Easton mall and some other ones sprinkled everywhere.

Labradorite, of all the beads, needs to be chosen in person, they are all so different and the angle and light they are viewed in makes all the difference. Even a good photo won't do justice. Good luck discovering these beauties.
