What is Labradorite?

Labradorite is a stunning mineral known for its iridescent and captivating play of colours. It belongs to the feldspar group and is composed of calcium, sodium, and aluminum silicate. The unique optical phenomenon displayed by labradorite is called labradorescence, where the stone exhibits vibrant flashes of blue, green, yellow, orange, and sometimes even purple when light strikes its surface at certain angles.

Labradorite can vary in colour and intensity. The base colour of labradorite is typically a dark gray or black, but it can also be found in shades of gray, brown, white, and even transparent or translucent forms. The labradorescent colours appear as patches, veins, or shimmers on the stone's surface, adding an enchanting and magical effect.

Where was Labradorite First Discovered?

Labradorite was first discovered in the late 18th century on the Labrador Peninsula in northeastern Canada. Hence, it derives its name from the region. It was initially referred to as "Labrador feldspar" due to its occurrence in Labrador and later became known as labradorite. Since its discovery, labradorite has been found in various other locations worldwide, including Madagascar, Finland, Russia, Norway, Australia, and the United States, among others. It has gained popularity as a gemstone and is widely used in jewelry due to its striking appearance and unique play of colours. Additionally, labradorite is also treasured for its metaphysical properties, believed to promote intuition, spiritual growth, and protection.
