LORE & PROPERTIES: The name is derived from the Labrador peninsula in Canada, where it was first found, in the late 1700's. It was treasured for the beautiful display of iridescent colors, flashes of green blue, gold, orange and red. Labradorite can deflect unwanted energies from the aura and prevents energy leakage. Metaphysically labradorite is known as a stone of magic, it is said to awaken ones awareness of their innate magical powers. It is helpful in accessing past lives, the Akashic Records, intuitive and psychic readings and communication with your higher self and spirit guides. It is used in divination of all sorts and assists one in traveling between realms and realities of the spirit and physical. It is associated with the element of wind, and the astrological signs of Scorpio & Sagittarius.
FACTS & TIDBITS: Labradorite is the plagioclase feldspar and in the same family as albite. Labradorite has been found in some meteorites. Gem quality labradorite is known as spectrolite; which is a colorless variety, darkened with needlelike inclusions, it is often called black moonstone. Spectrolite is a dark and opalescent blue with a shimmer when the light hits it.
LEGEND: According to an Eskimo legend, the Northern Lights were once imprisoned in the rocks along the coast of Labrador. It is told that a wandering Eskimo warrior found them and was able to free most of the lights with a mighty blow of his spear. Some of the lights were still trapped within the stone, and thus we have today the beautiful mineral known as labradorite.
