Labradorite is a member of the Feldspar family and is treasured for its remarkable play of color, known as labradorescence. The stone, usually gray-green, dark gray, black or grayish-white, is composed in aggregate layers that refract light as iridescent flashes of peacock blue, gold, pale green or coppery-red. The predominant blue varies within the light, displaying hues from deepest blue to various shades of pale almost blue-green.
Lore of the Inuit peoples claim labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis. It was discovered in Labrador Canada by Moravian missionaries in 1770 and was named after the region. It is in every sense, a stone of magic, a crystal of shamans, diviners, healers and all who travel and embrace the universe seeking knowledge and guidance.
Labradorite tempers the negative side of our personality. It is a wonderful gem for returning joy and spontaneity back to one’s life. It helps eliminate the emotional drain of daily routine or being weighed down by responsibility and awakens a sense of adventure and change.
There are no lack of reasons to love labradorite—as we most emphatically do and incorporate it into our work whenever possible.
