Labradorite has labradoresence.
The base color of labradorite is a dark smoky grey, but when light strikes the stone, it displays beautiful rainbow colored reflections. This effect is so unique to labradorite that it is referred to as "labradoresence."
We don't just love it because it's beautiful.
According to esoteric and mythical practices, labradorite is bountiful in it's healing and intuitive properties. It is often regarded as being helpful in stress and pain reduction as well as aiding in the health of the throat chakra.
It's like having our own piece of the sky.
Inuit legend holds one of our favorite stories of labradorite origin. According to the tale, the Northern Lights were once imprisoned in the rocks along the coast of Labrador. A wandering warrior found them and freed most of the lights with a mighty blow from his spear; however, some of the northern lights remained trapped along the coast- still holding the beauty and magic of the Aurora Borealis.
We're fond of the idea of wearing The Northern Lights around our necks.
