Details

Labradorite was officially discovered on St. Paul Island in Labrador, Canada, in 1770. However, pieces of the gemstone have been found among Native American artifacts in Maine. During the 18th century, labradorite was frequently used in jewelry in France and England. It is a sodium-rich variety of plagioclase feldspar found in igneous or metamorphic rocks. When light hits labradorite from a particular direction, it can display striking rainbow-colored reflections known as labradorescence or schiller. It is in the same family as moonstone. Stones with a light green-gray base and moderate schiller are known simply as labradorite. It is believed to elevate consciousness and protect a person's aura, helping to keep the aura clear, balanced, protected and free from energy leaks.
