Science – Labradorite is part of the plagioclase family, and displays “labradorescence,” which is a play of colors from light reflecting off of twinnings inside the stone. Color can shift from blue, orange, pink, purple, yellow and silver.
Historical Significance – Labradorite is a more recent discovery. It was found in the late 18th century. It is named for Labrador, Newfoundland, where enormous specimen have been found. Since it’s discovery it have become incredibly popular in home design and within magical groups.
Metaphysical Attributes – This gemstone is incredibly useful in its ability to help someone discover their destiny and spiritual purpose. Meditating with Labradorite, and wearing it, will help dissolve the mental barriers that are hindering you from seeing your True Path. In this vein, Labradorite assists with developing ALL intuitive and psychic abilities. If you are learning meditation, divination, channeling, energy healing, astral projection, dream work (and more!), this gemstone can help remove barriers in learning and help you feel more comfortable with these practices.
This stone also protects the aura. It can cleanse, balance, and rejuvenate the auric body. Labradorite protects from auric attachments and “energy leaks.” If you are feeling a lack on energy or sluggishness that is not resolved with other energy-amplifying stones (or caffeine), then you may want to explore the health or your aura.
Labradorite is the Stone of Transformation. It will guide you through major life changes and disturbances. If you are experiencing a major life event (marriage, death of a loved one, child birth, etc.), wearing Labradorite can ease your transition. This stone can also help transform the information you receive on the Intuitive plane into intellectual thoughts that can be formed into plans. It helps to make the transformation from insight, to dream, to idea, to plan, and into reality!

Practice Mantras – Sit in seated meditation, holding the Labradorite in your less dominant hand to receive its energy. Really feel the support of the cushion or floor beneath you. You are grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies. Imagine a flower of multi-colored light blossoming at your Third Eye. This flower is absorbing the light rays of the sun. Repeat these words. “I am willing to accept and pursue my Divine Path.”
Alternately, hold a Labradorite mala and chant this mantra 108 times.
