UNEARTHED TREASURE Raw Labradorite. #3
RAW LABRADORITE #3
Labradorite is a stone I’ve been resistant to offer in my online store as it is exceptionally difficult to capture the true beauty of this irridecent shimmery beauty. Elusive colours reveal themselves in the light - the lore of the ancient inuits claim that labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis. An ordinary stone that transformed to the extraordinary, shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms.
It is, in every sense, a Stone of Magic, a crystal of shamans, diviners, healers, and all those who travel and embrace the universe seeking knowledge and guidance. For self-discovery, it is excellent for awakening our own awareness of inner spirit, intuition and psychic abilities. So it is with great pleasure I offer you this rare raw stone, which captures the soul of this stone.

- Discovered in Labrador, Canada, by Moravian missionaries in 1770 who named it for the area. It is, however, referenced in legends by older Inuit tribes, and was known to be in use by the Boethuk peoples of Newfoundland and Labrador. It became a popular gem in Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. [Simmons, 225][Eason, 163][Melody, 367]
- Rarer varieties of Labradorite include Golden Labradorite, a transparent gold or champagne-colour, and Spectrolite (see below), which is an intense variety displaying the entire colour spectrum, discovered in Finland in the 1940s.

Any crystals used for energy work need to be regularly cleansed. I suggest placing in full moon moonlight to energize,and revitalise.
