Labradorite, named after the region in Canada in which it was first described, is characterised by its remarkable play of iridescent colours, called a ‘Schiller effect’, caused by the scattering of light between the thin layers of this beautiful mineral. Labradorite’s magical colours range from orange and gold, to mermaid green and bright peacock blue, and occasionally deep violet. Frequently these colours occur in the same stone, creating a dazzling interplay of colour and light, ensuring that no two stones are exactly the same. Labradorite has been treasured by Canadian First Nations people for centuries, prized for its resemblance to the Northern Lights. It is thought by some to be a powerful protector against negativity and misfortune, and to aid in meditation.
This piece is a perfect addition to any gemstone-lover’s collection, perfect worn on its own for a delicate, refined effect, or layered up with chunkier pieces for a more eclectic effect.
