Dwell Into The Realm Of Infinite Knowledge
If you find yourself drawn to Labradorite, then you might be getting a sign that you need to put some extra work on your spiritual path in life.
Labradorite is a well-known crystal that helps in finding your spiritual path and exploring different realms of existence. Besides that, labradorite is also a well-known protector, especially when traveling to different realms of existence, and of one’s aura. In fact, it is a stone often used by shamans, to help them safely travel to different spiritual realms.
Labradorite shimmers with greenish-grey and sometimes traces of blue often resembles Aurora Borealis. The Inuit people believe that Labradorite fell from Aurora Borealis itself. They also believe that it has the power to transform from an ordinary to an extraordinary, magical stone.
Labradorite was discovered in Labrador, Canada – and although this wasn’t the first time that people have encountered labradorite, it was the first time that it was named by missionaries for the area in which it was discovered.
There are a few varieties of labradorite, where it can appear golden, or a somewhat champagne color, but these are very rare.

Origin of Labradorite:
Labradorite is a crystal that has been known to be used for a very long time by the Inuit people of Newfoundland. It is often referenced in their legends, however the first time it gets its name by which we know it today is somewhere in the 1700s by Moravian missionaries.
It’s a crystal from the Feldspar mineral family, and it can be found in a few locations around the world, like Newfoundland, Norway, and Finland. Labradorite is a very special crystal because it possesses labradorescence – the ability for its colors to truly come to life by shimmering and seemingly change colors when exposed to light.
Are There Different Types of Labradorite?
Yes, but they are very rare! Most of the Labradorite you see is the most common type of crystal. However, it has been reported that in very rare cases Golden Labradorite can be found.
How Do Tell If Your Labradorite Is Real?
Labradorite is one of those very rare crystals that is very hard to be faked. That is mainly because it possesses labradorescence, which makes the colors pop, the transition from one another, and shimmer in a very special way when exposed to light, which is why it’s very hard to fake a Labradorite.
Be careful though, because some Labradorite can possess adularescence, which makes it shimmer with lighter tones of color – white, or very light blue color. Although it’s rare, sometimes it is possible because of this property for Labradorite to be mistaken for Moonstone.
The Mohs Hardness for Labradorite is anywhere from 6 – 6.5 making it a durable stone. However, even though it’s a durable stone, Labradorite will disintegrate if left in water for longer periods of time. So make sure that whenever you want to clean your Labradorite, you just give it a quick rinse under water and dry it out immediately after that.

Leaving your Labradorite under a Full Moon on your windowsill will cleanse it fully and thoroughly. No matter what way you chose to cleanse your labradorite, just be sure to set an intention that your crystal is cleansed with all that does not belong to you.
