Labradorite was first discovered in and named after Labrador, a province in Canada. Labradorite is known for the beautiful reflective qualities that appear in the stone. Light enters the stone and returns as a myriad of colors such as green, blue, red, and yellow. It’s such a curious phenomenon, the term “Labradorescence” was coined for the stone. Labradorite is often used for jewelry, but it must be cut or shaped with care so the reflective veins can shine. An uncommon version of labradorite called “spectrolite” was discovered by accident in Finland while a defense line was being built in World War II. Many consider labradorite to be one of the most beautiful mineral specimens on the planet, and combined with the remarkable discovery of spectrolite, it’s believed to hold vast spiritual significance. A true gift of nature, even in rough times. Labradorite is for those who seek positivity in a negative environment; it is a gift from the earth to those who seek peace and knowledge. Many attribute the colors with a link to the Aurora Borealis (“Northern Lights”), which further cements its mystical reputation.
