Labradorite is a gemstone that was named after Labrador in Canada, where it was found on the Isle of Paul. According to legend, labradorite has been valued for its power as well as its beauty.
It is an interesting stone, as it is iridescent and has beautiful variations of color. The special glow that seems to come from inside these gorgeous stones has lead to the use of the term "labradorescence", which is used in an attempt to describe it more accurately. It is a transitional, transformational gem.
Blue, gray-green and pale green are just some of the many hues contained in labradorite gemstones. The stones can also be copper-red, gold, pale champagne and various shades of blue-green. Golden labradorite, which is pale champagne and gold, is rare. Spectrolite is a type of labradorite that displays the whole color spectrum in each gemstone.
