There are several mysteries associated with andesine. For one thing, no one seems sure exactly what to call it. Sometimes it is called andesine and sometimes andesine-labradorite. Then there is the question of its origin. No one seems quite sure where it comes from. The original reports said the Congo, then China, then Mongolia or Tibet or south India.
Specimens of andesine have been tested for their chemical composition, but only recently has it been determined that many samples, particularly red ones, have been diffusion treated to improve the color.
