Stories and legends

Labradorite comes from the Labrador region in Canada. It is a Canadian region where approximately a third of the population comes from indigenous peoples (Innu, Inuit and Métis). This incredible stone was discovered in 1770 by a group of missionaries from Central Europe charged with evangelizing the local population.

The suffix “ite” comes from Greek meaning “mineral”. Labradorite literally means “mineral from Labrador”. It was not until 1780 that the geologist M. Foster named this stone labradorite.

This stone is sometimes nicknamed “rainbow moonstone”. Furthermore, there is spectrolite which is a variety of labradorite, showing all the nuances of the light spectrum. Discovered during World War II in Finland, this mineral is somewhat reminiscent of the inside of mussel shells. Although the colors look similar, labradorite should not be confused with opal or moonstone.

Several legends are associated with labradorite. The most famous is that of the Scandinavian peoples. This legend says that labradorite has its magnificent iridescent reflections thanks to the Northern Lights.

At the same time, that of the Inuit explains that a young warrior broke an immense labradorite with his spear in order to release the celestial light. Shards burst from the stone and rose to the sky, forming the Northern Lights. Others spread across the earth, freezing eternally in the rock, creating these labradorite stones with splendid reflections.

Some natives were convinced that this stone was the link between the terrestrial world and the invisible world. They believed that the rock contained the souls of their ancestors.

However, during archaeological digs in Maine, various objects carved from labradorite were found. They date from the year 1000 and were made by the Algonquin Native Americans.

It is believed that people who are attracted to labradorite are descendants of the sunken continent of Atlantis. For the record, Atlantis was a huge island, attributed to the god of the sea Poseidon during the division of the world. This island suddenly disappeared during a cataclysm caused by Zeus.

According to the ancients, labradorite has powerful healing properties. They say that by crushing it and reducing it to powder, it would cure many ailments. In the second part of the 19th century, many jewelers made fabulous jewelry in various styles from labradorite. They notably make cameos or cuts. Labradorites, of lower quality, are used as facing stone on building facades or as ornamental objects for decoration.

Labradorite belongs to the family of plagioclase feldspars, which includes silicates and tectosilicates. It essentially contains sodium, calcium, iron and magnesium. It diffuses magnificent metallic blue, yellow or green reflections caused by adularescence, a sort of shimmer due to the interference of the different internal layers, also called the Schiller effect. It forms in metamorphic or magmatic rocks. It has a hardness of 6 to 6.5 on the Mohs scale.

This balanced throat chakra encourages speech or other forms of expression. It makes listening and understanding easier. The words used are often fair and clear. The message comes across well and shows sincerity.

The unbalanced throat chakra, too open, causes lack of self-confidence and fear of others. It breeds irony, manipulation and nastiness. He can go as far as aggressiveness.

Blocked throat chakra prevents expression. It causes a lack of creativity and the fear of being misjudged by others. Speech is then incoherent, even crude. It causes nervousness and anxiety.

As soon as it is extracted, labradorite can no longer be purified or recharged using the elements of nature that surround it. Also, upon arrival in your home, you must carry out the following operations. These operations are carried out regularly because of labradorite's ability to absorb emotions. It must therefore be purified and recharged approximately once a week.

Immerse your stone in a transparent glass filled with spring water for 2 hours. Dry it gently using a soft cloth. You can also purify it using the white sage fumigation technique or by placing it in a Tibetan bowl.
