About the item

Labradorite is one of my favourite stones with its unique colour play and wonderful greeny blue hues and flashes. According to an Eskimo legend, the Northern Lights were once imprisoned in the rocks along the coast of Labrador. It is told that a wandering Eskimo warrior found them and was able to free most of the lights with a mighty blow of his spear. Some of the lights were still trapped within the stone, and thus the fable of the legend past into reality and the name of the location in which the stone was found became its namesake.

The irredescent colour play that the stone exhibits is known as "labradorescence", or schiller effect, and is the result of light diffraction within the "lamellar intergrowths". The fine, adjacent layers of the separate minerals and crystals making up the stone.

These faceted chunks are a lovely bluey-green labradorite measuring on average 12mm x 12 mm. Traditionally, labradorite is thought to bring good luck.

All our charms and pendants are suitable for our Rosa Necklaces, however some are in our opinion are probably too big for Rosa Bracelets. This charm is suitable for both Rosa Necklaces and Bracelets
