The staff from my new age shop, Mimosa Books & Gifts, had this to share:
Labradorite is one stone that needs no introduction. People with intuitive gifts seem to be instinctively drawn to this crystal. And there’s a good reason for this: Labradorite is one of the minerals we recommend most often for psychic shielding and protection. Plus it’s great for promoting energy balance, astral travel and lucid dreaming. Polished pieces are also good for scrying (visual divination). And of course, it makes a gorgeous pendant or set of earrings!
Labradorite has a lot in common with moonstone: both are feldspars sharing the same basic makeup (Ca, Na)(Al, Si)4O8), and both show a distinctive, often-bluish inner shine that results when light reflects back from the inner planes of feldspar. But its darker color gives labradorite a highly spiritual quality, so that people going through spiritual awakening or development often find themselves irresistibly attracted to it.
Safety note: Please don’t use labradorite to make elixirs, since it contains aluminum.
Labradorite is named after the Labrador peninsula in northern Canada. There is a legend there that the northern lights once got trapped in stone. An inuit man went to look for them, and after he finally found them, he tried to free them by striking the rock with the shaft of his spear. But he was only partially successful. Some of the light was freed, and took its place in the sky as the aurora borealis, but some of the light remained trapped in the stone. This is how labradorite came to be.
Fun fact: The schiller (inner glow) of labradorite reminds a lot of people of the glowing moon. But did you know that there actually IS a close relative of this stone on the moon? Labradorite is a combination of two types of feldspar, albite and anorthite. It turns out that the highlands of the moon are largely composed of the latter. In fact, the Genesis Rock brought back from the Moon by the crew of Apollo 15 is mostly anorthite.
