Labradorite gains its name from where it was first discovered, in Labrador, Canada. It has also been found in Norway and various other locations worldwide. This dark stone displays an iridescent optical effect known as labradorescence, creating flashes of light in varying colours when the crystal is moved from side to side.
The Inuit people tell the tale of a great warrior who once struck his spear into a labradorite, releasing many of the lights to become the famed Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights. Labradorite is a crystal of adventure. It prods the mind to consider new ideas and exciting possibilities. It encourages you to think for yourself and not live a life dictated by your surrounding influences. Labradorite is here to help you shine your light on the world.
