Labradorite is a gray colored stone that displays rainbow flashes of iridescent color on its surface when turned in the light. It is sometimes called 'Storm Cloud with Rainbows', a very descriptive name.
Labradorite is a very shamanic stone and an excellent companion for anyone who uses magic and ritual to create change in their life. It is believed to free the power of the imagination, inspire creativity, release inhibitions and false modesty and increase confidence in your power and your unique magical abilities. Labradorite can be used to open channels of communication with spiritual beings and invite them to be present in your life, which makes it a useful stone for anyone seeking a spiritual ally, totem or familiar. Labradorite is said to be attracted to people who are searching for wisdom or spiritual growth and working with the stone can help you to recognize magical knowledge in the most unlikely of places.
Although Labradorite is usually gray there is also a very rare form of golden Labradorite which has a translucent yellow color similar to Topaz. Golden Labradorite is known as 'Sun after Storms' and is said to bring deliverance from oppression and protect spiritual seekers who face discrimination or abuse. Golden Labradorite is used in crystal healing to help relieve the effects of stress and tension, especially after a long and arduous time of troubles.
