First found in Labrador, Canada (name sake), Labradorite is a crystalline form of Feldspar with an iridescent flash of fire in many possible hues, including blues, greens, red, orange and yellow. This optical phenomenon called “labradorescence” is a play of light striking twinning surfaces (microscopical planes) within the stone itself, producing multi-colored iridescent reflections back to the viewer. Labradorite may also exhibit another optical effect; “aventurescence” or the appearance of internal metallic “glitter” (minute mineral platelets offering reflected optical effects). Striations (ridges, furrows, and linear marks) within the stone also contribute to the character and interest of this gemstone. Labradorite has a Mohs Hardness of 6-6.5. It is found in Norway and Canada, and many other locations worldwide. If a Labradorite specimen is exceptional in color and labradorescence, it may also be called “Spectrolite.”
Metaphysical properties of gemstones and minerals are provided for informational purposes only, and no life altering results are guaranteed. Labradorite is said to represent transformation and preparation for change. It is often associated with will-power, protection, assisting with seeing true intentions, and healing feelings of low inner worth. One beautiful ancient tale pays tribute to the timeless beauty of this gemstone. It says that a warrior once plunged his spear into Labradorite, releasing the lights to become the aurora borealis. The energy of Labradorite is said to call up warrior within.
