Labradorite showcases a light show similar to the one we see in the Northern Lights. This is because the Aurora Borealis is said to have originated from Labradorite rocks. It is named after the Labrador Peninsula in Canada.
Its dreamy incandescence comes from the light that hits the hard crystalline mineral on the inside, birthing to a display of spectral colors that is seen from the façade of the stone. This phenomenon is known as “labradorescence”. Labradorite’s colors vary from off-white to black, blue to green, and even orange to red.
