About: Labradorite is composed of aggregate layers that refract light as iridescent flashes of peacock blue and pale green. It is a member of the Feldspar family and is treasured for this remarkable play of color, known as labradorescence. Labradorescence is the result of light diffraction within the lamellar intergrowths of the stone.
The name, Labradorite, comes from the fact that it was first discovered by westerners in Labrador, Canada, but it is also referenced, in legends by older Inuit tribes and by the Boethuk peoples of Newfoundland and Labrador. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries it became a popular gem in Europe due to its ability to refract light.
