Have you ever been captivated by a gemstone's unique beauty and wondered what makes it so special? Labradorite is one such stone that has long been associated with magical and mystical powers. This stunning gemstone, which is a type of feldspar, ranges in color from blue to green to yellow. It's often described as having an otherworldly sparkle due to its iridescence, or labradorescence. Let’s explore why this gemstone is so captivating.
The Magic of Labradorite
Labradorite is prized for its shimmering rainbow-like play of colors. This effect, known as labradorescence, is created when light passes through the labradorite’s cleavage planes at different angles and splits into its component colors - red, orange, green and blue. The more intense the labradorescence in the stone, the higher its value. That's why some stones are more valuable than others - they have more vibrant flashes of color!
The History of Labradorite
This mesmerizing stone has an interesting history and cultural significance around the world. Inuit mythology tells a story of how the Northern Lights were once trapped inside rocks until a brave warrior freed them by smashing them with his spear - thus creating the beautiful labradorite gems we know today! Meanwhile in Finland and Scandinavia, it was believed that wearing or carrying this gemstone could protect travelers on their journeys across sea or land.
