about Labradorite:

Labradorite belongs to the feldspar mineral group (including moonstone, sunstone, aventurine and amazonite) and is characterized by its beautiful play of color, known as labradorescence. The stone has a hardness of 6-6.5 on the Mohs scale and refracts light in the form of iridescent flashes of blues, greens and gold.


Labradorite was "discovered" in Labrador in the late 18th century by missionaries who named it for the area. It is, however, referenced in legends of the aboriginal peoples of Newfoundland and Labrador. Lore of the Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis, an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary, shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms.


Rarer varieties of labradorite include golden labradorite, a transparent gold or champagne-color, and spectrolite, an intense variety displaying the entire color spectrum, discovered in Finland in the 1940s.
