Appearances & Origins

Labradorite, also known as ‘The Stone of Transformation’, is named after the region of Labrador Peninsula in Canada, where it was first discovered in 1770. This particular crystal is such a popular stone for the home because of its labradorescence which presents in all colours just like a peacock! Ranging from brilliant turquoise, blue all the way through to purple and deep gold. Its lustrous metallic reflections are also known as ‘flash’ are also said to resemble the Northern Lights.

Native Inuit tribes of North America claim the first Labradorite fell from the Aurora Borealis from the fire of their ancestors. Another legend describes a brave Inuit warrior who struck Labradorite with his spear and created the Northern Lights.

Be aware Labradorite is generally mostly a dark and moody stone in shades of charcoal, grey and brown. When the light hits it at the right angle it will reveal it’s stunning flashes of a peacock.

Sunlight Exposure

  • Labradorite is generally known to be okay with light.
  • Extended periods of direct sunlight may cause deeply coloured Labradorite to fade over time.
  • The colour change will not affect the energy your crystal omits, however, keep an eye on them.
  • If you see some colour change that you prefer to avoid, place your stone in a place where there is indirect or dappled light.
