What is Labradorite?
Labradorite possesses a stunning, unique type of iridescence that creates a shimmering rainbow in the light. This effect is achieved by aggregate layers in the stone, which refract light. Labradorite was named for the region of Labrador, Canada, where it was discovered. Most Labradorite crystals are blue, but they may have green, purple, or orange colors. Native Canadian tradition holds that Labradorite contains the Northern Lights and that the Aurora Borealis was formed when a hunter broke a Labradorite stone with his spear.
Labradorite catapulted to fame when a rare variety, known as Spectrolite, was found by soldiers constructing defensive structures in Finland during World War II. The cultural significance of this beautiful crystal appearance during a time of conflict and hardship belies its metaphysical benefits: Labradorite is a stone of perseverance. This crystal’s rainbow energy gives you the strength and positivity to flourish, even in difficult times.

Archangel Raziel lovingly reminds you to never stop asking questions and wants to magically assist you on your journey and transformation.
Use Labradorite to invoke Archangel Michael and banish the fears taking up space in you physical and emotional bodies.

These days the eternal is overwhelming and takes up a great amount of space in your mind and body.

If you can't love yourself or invite that fear into your heart space for transmutation - that is okay! The fear can be almost sticky and keep you stagnant.

With the ease of the stress and anxiety you can look at the fear or discomfort from a higher perspective and detach from its bondage. Labradorite is very potent in its protective energy and can also banish that fear completely!

This is a beautiful shift from “I am scared” to “I feel fear, but why am I feeling it?”
