Healing Properties of Labradorite Crystals
If you are familiar with the Magician card of the Tarot, it is a good corollary to labradorite. Magic is using mental and spiritual energy to transform consciousness. It includes psychic abilities such as telepathy and clairvoyance, divination, astral projection, and communication with spirit entities. But this is a realm which requires self-mastery and harnessing one’s intentions. This is not wishing or dreaming–it is conscious, focused work. Labradorite helps you do this work.
Labradorite facilitates awareness of multiple layers of reality at the same time; thus it is a good stone for shamanic work and those working with the Akashic records. Labradorite is a protective crystal for doing this work, keeping your aura strong and blocking intruders. It can also help you remember your experiences while journeying in other realms, or recall past life memories.
Labradorite as a Gemstone
Labradorite is a variety of feldspar. Although it has a dirty gray color in the rough, cut stones have a metallic lustre and an iridescent sheen suggestive of the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis). When seen at the right angle, various shades of vivid blue, green, gold, purple, and other colors are revealed. These crystals are usually cut with at least one flat surface to bring out these colors.
Labradorite was named after the peninsula of Labrador in Canada, where it was discovered in 1770. It has since been found in other areas around the world. It is a 6-6.5 on the Mohs scale and is not expensive.
Spectrolite is a variety of labradorite with intense colors, originally found in Finland.
