So many people we have met have fallen in love with Labradorite. The smooth, dark surface, when held in the light, suddenly flashes beautiful colors, such as blues, yellows and oranges. These flashes are known as Labradoressence. Labradorite is sometime referred to as the "Dreamers Stone", The "Stone of Courage" or the "Transformation stone." The stone may be placed under your pillow at night, to promote lucid dreams and some others use it to ease insomnia. Labradorite also helps deflect negative energies by easing fears, and ridding of past disappointments. It also encourages courage, self soothing, artistic ambitions and mental clarity. Labradorite is known as one of the most powerful protectors of your lungs and blood, digestion, and overall well being.. If you are going through any kind of transistion, Labradorite is for you.
Labradorite is found mostly in the Labrador regions in Canada. The shimmer and colors have been linked to the beautiful dancing colors of the Aurora Borealis. The stone is also found Finland, Norway, the U.S. and Russia. It is said many tales about Laboradite are linked to the Inuit people. According to the legend, an Inuit warrior came across the stone and believed that Aurora had become trapped within the stone. He used his spear to crush the stone and set the light free. In Finland, they call this stone Spectrolite because it seemed to capture all the colors of the spectrum.
The colors you find in this stone are caused by refracted light traveling at different speed through its layers and return on a different wave length. Because of all its layers, Labradorite is susceptible to breakage. This is the reason you find a lot of Labradorite in jewelry or in smaller pieces. Combined with silver, gold or rose gold, make the power of this crystal even stronger. Silver is known for healing skin, gold has a balancing effect on the body and rose gold helps benefit your nervous system.
The stones that work best with Labradorite are Fluorite, Obsidian and Amethyst
Use gentle soap and water and an untreated cloth to clean your Labradorite. Or charge in the moonlight. Labradorite is prone to scratches, even from dust, so you may want to take extra care with a super soft cloth when cleaning. While you may charge in the sun, it may cause the coloring of your stone to fade.
