Labradorite is a feldspar, first found near Paul's Island, near the town of Nain in Labrador, Canada. The "schiller" or play of colour - the flashes of bright blue and rainbow - are known as labradorescence. It is in the same family of stones as moonstone, sunstone and spectrolite.
According to an Inuit legend, the Aurora (Northern Lights) were playing on the rocks by the shore. They were careless and forgot themselves as they danced by the waves, and they were imprisoned in the rocks by an evil and jealous wizard. A wandering warrior eventually found them, and set them free with a mighty blow of his spear - but he didn't manage to free all the lights, and the few left trapped in the stone give us Labradorite.
Considered by mystics to be a stone of transformation and magic. It is said to clear, balance and protect the aura, as well as being an excellent stone for general protection. 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. Mystically, energies of stress and anxiety are said to be reduced by labradorite, possibly due to is energy of self-confidence. Labradorite is said to increase intuition, psychic development, esoteric wisdom, help with subconscious issues, and provide mental illumination.
