Labradorite is a plagioclase feldspar, a sodium calcium aluminum silicate with a hardness of 6 to 6.5. Its crystal structure is triclinic, usually in complex aggregates. its name is derived from the Labrador peninsula in Canada, where the stone was first found in 1770. It is treasured for its remarkable play of color (labradorescence), which shows vivid flashes of green, blue, gold, orange, red and sometimes violet. Labradorite is found in Canada, Madagascar, Mexico, Russia and the United States. In the 1940s, Labradorites were discovered in Finland that exhibited the entire color spectrum, and these were named Spectrolite. Larvikite is a silvery gray Labradorite from Scandinavia. Another close cousin of Labradorite is Nuummite, a gemstone native to Greenland. It exhibits similar colors to Labradorite and Spectrolite, but in a different crystal pattern.
The Red Paint people of Maine were familiar with Labradorite and used it over one thousand years ago. When Moravian missionaries in Canada discovered the material in 1770, they named it for the area. After its discoveries in Russia and Norway, the gem became popular in Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Labradorite assists one in moving between realities and connecting with unseen realms. It enhances psychic abilities and increases one's capacity to visualize and perceive with the inner eye. Labradorite is particularly useful for magical and ritual work and acts as psychic protection for those who travel and serve on other levels of reality.
Labradorite can aid in uncovering unconscious and subconscious belief patterns that generate unpleasant emotional states. It can help one to become clearly aware of the source of beliefs, self-talk and egoic influence on one's habitual emotional states.
Labradorite can help reveal the nature of 'mystery illnesses.' It can show the patterns that have created disease and can amplify one's healing thoughts and prayers.
