I purchased some fab green labradorite briolettes at the last SF Gem and Mineral Society Show.
Of, course the vendor agreed they were some of the brightest material he'd seen assuring me that they hadn't been treated in any way.
When I was in Tucson, I looked for some accenting beads which might make a nice strand and strung them up yesterday.

Looking at the beads through a back lit, Gem A portable light:

The large green briolettes are totally filled with green dye. The other beads are untreated.
