Gemstone We Love This Week : Labradorite

LAB-24

Why do we love it: Labradorite is looks like magic trapped in glass. Ripples of iridescent rainbows just dance along the surface in sunlight.

Where is it from: It was first discovered along the Labrador Peninsula in Canada, hence its name Labradorite which is quite a mouthful. It is also found Norway, USSR and a blue variety that is only in Finland.

What’s it made of: Oh the regular stuff gemstones are made of out, Sodium, Calcium, Silicon , Aluminum and some Oxygen. It is a type of albite which tend to be rather grayish white with a bluish tinge. Truthfully, Labradorite is a Transparent gray color but its structure allows it to shimmer in the light.

Magical property: Wearing or carrying a labradorite stone allows your own magical abilities to manifest and enhances clairvoyant mental abilities. This stone will also energize you, many times people will pick out jewelry made of this stone without knowing why they are so drawn to it.

Birthstone: Labradorite is for Libras in September.

Fun Fact: Without light, Labradorite looks quite dull.
