Labradorite is known as the stone of magic and awakes one’s magical powers and to the higher consciousness. This stone is also referred to as the temple of stars because it brings light to the person working it. It promotes inner knowing of the “right time”, intuition, and patience. The energies provide a sense of purposeful direction and facilitates self transformation. Labradorite works to protect, balance, strengthen and keep one’s aura clear. It increases coincidences and synchronistic moments.
Chemical Formula: (Ca,Na)Al1-2Si3-2O8
Labradorite is in the feldspar family and is formed in pegmatites and alkaline igneous rocks. It often displays a spectrum of colors known as labradorescence. This occurs when the chemistries of the stone are separated into different layers due to high temperatures being incompatible with lower temperatures. Light rays enter one of the layers and are refracted by different layers. The various refractions angles produce different colors throughout the stone. When Labradorite crystals have incredible pinks and purples, they are often referred to as Spectrolite.
Labradorite received its name after being discovered in 1770 near Labrador, Canada. The Eskimo legends say that along the Labrador coast, there were stones that trapped the essence of the Northern Lights, also called the aurora borealis. They said that one day a warrior would free the lights. As we know, The Northern Lights are seen today and legend claims the only trapped remains of these lights are said to be in Labradorite.
