Labradorite is a form of plagioclase feldspar with a unique and intriguing history. First discovered by the Inuit people of the northern Canadian province of Labrador, this mineral has long been prized for its brilliant and iridescent appearance, which some have likened to the shimmering colors of the northern lights. Inuit legend has it that the blue flash of labradorite is the Northern Lights trapped within. One day a warrior struck the stone with a spear releasing the Northern Lights into the sky.
Over time, labradorite beads have become a popular in gemstone jewelry, particularly among artisans and jewelers looking to create striking pieces that shimmer in all kinds of lighting. Today, labradorite remains a favorite among jewelry lovers around the world.
