What is Labrodorite?
Labrodorite or the "stone of lights" is a stunning feldspar mineral of the plagioclase series, found in mafic igneous and metamorphic rocks such as norite, basalt, and gabbro. Labrodorite is well known for it's play on many colors, like that of a rainbow. The visually compelling and the most appealing color display featured within Labrodorite is known as "labradorescence". It is an absolutely beautiful sight to behold! This is caused by internal fractures inside of the mineral that reflects the light back and forth, distributing different arrays of colors. Labradorescent colors can include blue, green, yellow, orange, purple, and red too.
This crystal was named after being discovered in Labrodor, Canada by Moravian missionaries in 1770. Labrodorite is found all over the world including other areas in Canada, Mexico, United States, Norway, and South America. Many think Labrodorite is one of the most beautiful stones to ever be found on Earth. During World War II, Spectrolite (a different variety of Labrodorite) was discovered by accident in Finland while a defense line was being built. This shows us that beauty can still arise even in the midst of chaos. This takes part in why this stone carries so much spiritual significance. Imagine the hope that this beautiful crystal may have brought to many experiencing such difficult, challenging times.

There is an old ancient legend about Labrodorite that I find very intriguing. The legend states a story of an Inuit Eskimo Warrior who struck a rock with his spear - releasing the beautiful lights that we know as the Aurora Borealis. The myth explains that the lights were once trapped inside of rocks along the coast of Labrador, Canada. The warrior helped release these stunning lights back into the sky, while leaving some of these energies that still remain inside these rocks. When the lights exploded into the sky, it created what we know today as the Northern Lights. Labrodorite was known to the native people as "fire rock" or "firestone".
