One of my favourite gemstones, the Labradorite takes its name from where it was first found on the Canadian peninsula of Labrador in 1805. I love its flashes of colour when viewed at certain angles. This optical effect, called labradorescence, is typically peacock blue but can include greens, coppery reds and dusky golds. This one is a beautiful example.
The Labradorite mineral has been thought to protect one’s aura, to dispel insecurity and to attract the strength and perseverance required to achieve one’s destiny. Some say it can help to clarify one’s direction and provide for vitality in bringing about desired transitions.
As a type of felspar, it has also been considered to assist one in detaching from the old, encouraging unconventional and exciting methods to attain one’s goals.
