Brief history and geological characteristics:

Labradorite is a member of the Feldspar family and is treasured for its remarkable play of colour, known as “labradorescence”. The stone, usually gray-green, dark gray, black or grayish-white, is composed of aggregate layers that refract light as iridescent flashes of peacock blue, gold, pale green, or coppery red. The predominant blue colour varies within the light, displaying hues from deepest blue to various shades of pale, almost blue-green. Labradorite was first discovered in Labrador, Canada, by Moravian missionaries in 1770. However, it is also referenced in legends by older Inuit tribes, and it was known to be used by the Boethuk people of Newfoundland and Labrador. It became a popular gem in Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth century.

Spiritual and healing energy:

Labradorite is a tremendously spiritual stone. It is especially helpful for people who tend to overwork. Labradorite calms an overactive mind and energizes the imagination, bringing in new ideas. It is a wonderful tool for returning joy and spontaneity back to one's life. It helps eliminate the emotional drain of daily routine or the feeling of being weighed down by responsibility. It also awakens a sense of adventure and change and helps us regain our energy and heal our bodies and spirits. As a workplace stone, Labradorite brings out the best in people, making work life more congenial. It encourages courtesy and full attention to the customer. Labradorite tempers the negative side of our personalities, the traits and actions that rob our energy and may produce depression or shame. It assists in reducing anti-social, reckless or impulsive behaviour in children, teenagers and adults who are easily led into trouble by others, and may aid in detoxifying the effects of tobacco, alcohol, and to a lesser degree, even hard drugs.
