Cosmic. Destiny. Curiosity

Labradorite Crystal is a stone of magic, awakening within you, the mystical and magical abilities and psychic powers.

According to geology.com, some specimens of labradorite exhibit a schiller effect, which is a strong play of iridescent blue, green, red, orange, and yellow colours as shown in the photographs.

Labradorite is so well known for these spectacular displays of colour that the phenomenon is known as "labradorescence." Specimens with the highest quality labradorescence are often selected for use as gemstones.

What Causes Labradorescence?

Labradorescence is not a display of colours reflected from the surface of a specimen. Instead, light enters the stone, strikes a twinning surface within the stone, and reflects from it.

The color seen by the observer is the color of light reflected from that twinning surface. Different twinning surfaces within the stone reflect different colors of light. Light reflecting from different twinning surfaces in various parts of the stone can give the stone a multi-colored appearance.

Many specimens of labradorite do not exhibit labradorescence. These materials can still produce beautiful gemstones because of their desirable color or other optical effects such as aventurescence.

Some specimens of sunstone are labradorite. Sunstone is a plagioclase gemstone in which tiny platelets of copper or another mineral are arranged in a common orientation. These platelets produce a reflective flash when incident light enters the stone at a proper angle relative to the angle of observation.

Origins of Labradorite: 

Gemselect suggests that Labradorite was named after Labrador in Canada, where it was found on the Isle of Paul, near Nain in 1770. Labradorite, also known as Spectrolite, is a Feldspar mineral.  Labradorite in a white matrix is often called "Rainbow Moonstone".

Uses of Labradorite as Gemstone: 

Labradorite has become a popular gemstone because of the unique iridescent play-of-colour that many specimens exhibit. The quality, hue, and brilliance of the labradorescence vary from one specimen to another and within a single specimen. Stones with exceptional colour are often given the name "spectrolite."

Labradorite is rarely seen in mass-merchant jewelry. Instead it is most often used by designers and jewelers who do unique and custom work.

Labradorite (also called Spectrolite sometimes) is considered by mystics to be a stone of transformation and magic.

It is purported to help provide clarity and insight into your destiny, as well as attract success. It is used in metaphysics for dream recall and finding ways to use dreams in daily life. 

Benefits of Labradorite:

According to the crystal vaults, Labradorite increases intuition, psychic development, esoteric wisdom, and also provides mental illumination.

In crystal healing and folklore, Labradorite is said to help with eyes, sight, diagnosis, brain, digestion, metabolism, warts. Note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information. 

Wearing labradorite silver bracelets just seems to charge you with a sense of excitement and adventure, to take the steps required to go where you have not gone before!

According to the crystal bible, Labradorite's energy allows one to penetrate the veils of the Void, where all knowledge and possibility are held.

It is the place of potential and the source of creation, and for shamans, magicians, and Light workers.

Labradorite is also the most powerful protector of the mineral kingdom, creating a shielding force throughout the aura and strengthening natural energies from within. It protects against the negativity and misfortunes of this world, and provides safe exploration into alternate levels of consciousness and in facilitating visionary experiences from the past or the future. 

Chakra Properties 

Labradorite radiates predominant blue crystal energy that stimulates the Throat Chakra, the voice of the body.

The throat Chakra, in essence, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked, or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel.

The book of stones suggests that Golden Labradorite assists in opening the lower chakras during ritual or magical practices, while Spectrolite works with one's "Rainbow Body" to enhance awareness of the higher realms. Labradorite, in general, is known to align all of the Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra and Crown Chakra. 

It is also said to facilitate communication between the spiritual and physical world. It is therefore thought to help bring out psychic abilities.

Third Eye Chakra is involved with our intuition and our inner seeing, our higher consciousness, emotional and spiritual love centre. 

Crown Chakra allows inward flow of wisdom from the ethers and brings the gift of cosmic consciousness. When stimulated and clear, it enables one to see the truth concerning illusory ideals, materialistic pursuits and self-limiting concepts.
