Labradorite was first found in 1770 on the Labrador Peninsula in Canada and it is formed in volcanic rocks.

The base color of labradorite is a dark smoky gray, but when light strikes the stone in a particular direction, it will display striking rainbow-colored reflections. Most typically, these metallic tints are violet, blue and green; but sometimes yellow, orange and red can also be seen. This effect is so unique to labradorite that it is referred to as labradorescence. Due to this particular color effect, Labradorite is easily distinguished from all minerals

According to a Canadian Eskimo legend, the Northern Lights were once trapped in these rocks along the coast of Labrador. A wandering Eskimo warrior found them and freed most of the lights with a mighty blow of his spear. Some of these lights were still caught within the stone and thus we have the beautiful mineral known as labradorite.

It is believed to increase energy as well as reduce stress and anxiety. Furthermore, the stone is said to protect its wearer from danger. This stone is also known as the "firestone” or “fire rock”.
