Labradorite is a hidden gem among gems. At first glance it looks neutral-colored and mottled, but when the light hits it right, it suddenly shines with the brilliant bold blue and iridescent green and gold of a peacock’s tail. Because of these properties, labradorite is strongly associated with the inner world, with spiritual and psychic awakenings, and with transformation. It is also held to possess powerful stabilizing and protective energies. These small “slabs” or flat pieces of labradorite will bring mystery and magic to your home and altar. Their surprising beauty and eye-catching appearance will make for wonderful conversation pieces, and their twin gifts of stability and transformation make them a great present for a loved one going through a tough time in their life.
