Labradorite is the one semi-precious stone that will have you at “hello”.
Labradorite entices because it is so subtle and so luminous at the same time.
A true natural wonder, labradorite is the one stone can exhibit hues of bright aqua, golden yellow, peacock blue, reddish orange, vivid greens and red all at the same time. The hues found in labradorite remind me of a mood ring; ever-changing flickers and flashes of an array of colors with every turn of the stone.Labradorite is so fascinating and alluring with an elegant sophisticated ease. The enjoyment lies in the fact that it holds an ultra- glamorous secret which stays below the radar. You must look closely at labradorite to see it’s true colors- they won’t blind you from across the room, like a 10 carat diamond. In this way Labradorite is a seductive mystery stone, because you have no choice but to take a closer look.
The meaning of labradorite has historically been to supply the wearer with good fortune. It is believed by mystics that if Labradorite is worn as a pendant, the wearer will maintain a healthy body and obtain good fortune in all relationships.
But I find it perfectly alright to adore the stone because it is so stunningly captivating. The name labradorite comes from the location where the stone was initially found, on Paul’s Island, near the town of Nain in Labrador, Canada. Labradorite has also been reported to be mined in Norway and Madagascar; the stone can also be found in India, Russia and Newfoundland. Legend claims that the northern lights were trapped in the rocks along the coasts of Labrador. A drifting Eskimo warrior found these rocks and freed the lights with his spear. However, it is believed that many of these lights are still trapped within the stone today.If you are seeking an update to your current winter jewelry wardrobe, the look of labradorite is excellent for the cooler winter months. Shimmering yet still understated, labradorite can be worn as a perfect compliment to any array of forrest green, mauve, brown, taupe, beige, black, sienna, purple, teal, indigo, blue, cinnamon, oxblood, pumpkin and now, the 2015 color of the year- marsala. Due to the labradoressence (yes, that is an actual term) in labradorite, jewelry made with the stone can be worn with just about every color imaginable.
