Labradorite - An Introduction

Posted by Janet McCoid on


     Labradorite is classified as a feldspar, which means it belongs to a group of minerals that contain calcium, sodium, or potassium. Generally, this mineral is blue and dark gray in color, and is considered a semi-precious gemstone with a unique feature - spectacular rainbow iridescence!

     This feature is known as the schiller effect, in which “flashes” of bright colors can be seen within the mineral, including purple, orange, and green. This effect is often caused by minuscule, rod-like inclusions within a crystal. To observe this phenomenon, hold a piece of labradorite in your hand and move it back and forth at different angles. Stunning!                      

 Key Features of Labradorite:

  • Balances and protects the aura
  • Strengthens intuition
  • Considered helpful in treating depression and anxiety
  • Jump starts the imagination and creativity
  • Dispels negative energy
  • Supports breaking unhealthy habits

J. Hall has written, "This stone brings up suppressed memories from the past, [and] dispels illusions, going to the root of a matter and showing the intention behind thoughts and actions. Its reflective qualities make it an excellent protector, keeping others’ energies out..."
