The Magic of Labradorite

Labradorite is prized for its remarkable play of colors, often showcasing blue, green, and gold hues. The phenomenon responsible for this captivating display is called labradorescence, an optical effect that occurs when light enters the stone, strikes the layers of minerals, and then reflects back out.

This extraordinary feature of labradorite has fascinated people for centuries, leading to stories and legends surrounding the stone. Some indigenous cultures believe that labradorite contains the Northern Lights trapped within, while others consider it a stone of magic and transformation.

A Hidden Treasure Revealed
