What is labradorite and where is it found?

Labradorite was first identified in Labradore, northeast Canada, where the Inuit people believed that its flashes of colour were actually the Northern Lights of Aurora Borealis trapped inside. Legend has it that a mighty Eskimo warrior broke the rocks with his spear, freeing the colours that now dance across the Polar skies, and those that were not broken still have those Northern Lights within them. 

Labradorite is a feldspar mineral, a mixture of sodium, calcium, silicon and aluminium. Its trademark iridescence or ‘labradorescence’ as it is known is caused by light traveling through the crystals thin layers of minerals, reflecting back and forth and dispersing it into different colours.

Labradorite can be found in Canada, Italy, Greenland, Finland, Russia and Scandinavia.

Labradorite benefits, energies and uses.

Labradorite protects against negativity and misfortune, creating a shielding force throughout the aura and strengthening natural energies from within. It banishes the fears and insecurities that prevent mindfulness, encouraging you to have faith in yourself and trust in the universe. 

With a strong connection to the spirit world, mystical labradorite raises consciousness and connects with universal energies to boost your intuition and psychic abilities. A stone of contemplation and introspection, labradorite can help to calm your overactive mind and give you the insight and wisdom to reveal the truth behind illusions.

The perfect crystal to wear when you’re feeling a little stuck or stagnate, labradorite energises the imagination and brings enthusiasm and new ideas. It then supports you during times of change and transformation by imparting strength and perseverance.


How to clean, cleanse and charge labradorite.

Warm soapy water is all that is needed to clean your labradorite crystals. To cleanse and charge, rinse them under running water then position them where they can absorb sun and moon light over a 24 hour period. Charge during a full moon for best results, and remember extended periods of direct sunlight may cause deeply coloured labradorite to fade over time.
