Labradorite, named for the Labrador peninsula in Canada where it was first discovered, is a type of fledspar and has a hardness of 6-6.5. The flashy color play shown in Labradorite is referred to as "labradorescence" and while the primary color flash is blue, stones can exhibit purple, orange, green and yellow. Labradorite cleans and opens the crown chakra by stimulating the wearer’s intuition. It is a power stone that allows you to see through illusions and determine the actual form of your dreams and goals. Use this to stimulate the imagination, develop enthusiasm and to see more clearly in meditation. It is said to promote magic, transformation, and intuition. Liken this smoky, mystical-looking stone to a crystal ball—metaphysics utilizes it to tap deeply into intuition, recall lost dreams, and clear up a foggy subconscious.
Fine Labradorite is found in India, Finland, Russia, Madagascar, Mexico and the United States. Labradorite is believed to energize the imagination, assisting in bringing up new ideas.
