Labradorite is a member of the Feldspar family and is treasured for its remarkable play of color, known as labradorescence. The stone, usually gray-green, dark gray, black or grayish-white, is composed in aggregate layers that refract light as iridescent flashes of peacock blue, gold, pale green, or coppery red. The predominant blue varies within the light, displaying hues from deepest blue to various shades of pale, almost blue-green. It was claimed to be “first” discovered in Labrador, Canada, by Moravian missionaries in 1770 who named it for the area. It is, however, referenced long before in legends by older Inuit tribes, another example of white erasure of Native narrative. Lore of the Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis, an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary, shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms. Labradorite is a stone of the dreamer, artist & creative.
