It’s been approximately seven months since I posted on my blog. What I thought would be a short break turned into a long one. I am excited to be back. I will have some familiar posts to share and some new ones I hope you’ll enjoy and they’re all focused on helping people heal body mind and spirit.
My last crystal post here on WordPress was August 1st of last year and was about Trapiche Amethyst. At that point I had done 130 weekly posts over the course of two years discussing the properties have to offer for spiritual growth and healing.
I recently acquired several new crystals and this inspired me to begin this series anew. I have been updating my past articles. Several of them are posted on my Facebook page, I will post them here too in time. So here we go J let’s talk about today’s crystal subject, Labradorite.
The original post for this crystal went up back on August 8, 2017. Since that post I’ve discovered more about this, my favorite crystal, and although I’m not a geologist, I will share what I’ve learned with you.
Labradorite belongs to a family of approximately 20 crystals call the Feldspars. One of the things that make this group of crystals amazing is their color. When raw and unpolished they look like most other rocks, but when they’ve been cut and polished they’re uniqueness displays itself in beautiful layers of flashing color. For Labradorite it’s called Labradorescence.
From what I was able to discover in my research this crystal was first found sometime around 1770 by a group of missionaries doing an archeological dig in the Labrador region of Canada near the town of Nain and possibly on St. Paul Island. A few of the other locations Labradorite can be found are in Finland, France, Mexico, the US and Norway. The energy of the crystal resonates with the Throat and Third Eye Chakras and on the Mohs scale of hardness it is a 6 – 6.5.
Another type of Labradorite was supposedly found in Finland during the 1940’s called Spectrolite. What is special about this is it’s said to flash the entire color spectrum. I personally would love to see this! My ultimate goal is to own a piece of all the Feldspars this planet has. ❤
The Inuit people of Canada believed Labradorite was the Aurora Borealis that had been frozen and fell to earth; this made it a connection to the sky and unseen realms. They called it the Fire Stone and used it several ways. The Inuit People were probably the first to use it decoratively and for jewelry. They also believed it had medicinal ability so they would grind it into a powder for that purpose. The main use for Labradorite though was spiritual. They believed it was able to bring clarity to one’s life that allowed them to see a problem before they became problems.
This isn’t too far off to be believed. As a spiritual stone Labradorite is a powerful crystal of change. It’s known as the crystal of awakening and transformation. If you want your life to change in big ways it’s a crystal you might want to work with. Here are some of the spiritual and healing qualities of this beautiful crystal.
- It increases intuition and psychic ability.
- Helps improve concentration.
- Helps recall past lives so karma can be cleared.
- Shields you from negativity.
- It is said to balance the hormones in the body.
- It is said to ease arthritis.
- Makes a wonderful pendulum.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this brief look at Labradorite. If the qualities of this stone resonate with you I encourage you to purchase a piece and work with it. Keep in mind I am not a doctor and sharing the healing qualities of this stone is in no way giving medical advice. Working with it can improve your life, but if you are ill see your medical practitioner of choice.
Until Next Time…
Blessed Be ❤ Sharon
