A lovely large chunk of Labradorite, displaying blue shine from many angles which has been shaped into a decorative dish suitable for multiple purposes, such as holding Candles, Soap, Keys, even other crystals!
Lore of the Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis. This lore derives from the common iridescent optical effect, (or schiller) known as labradorescence.
Labradorite is named for its locality on Paul's Island near the town of Nain in Labrador, Canada. It has also been reported in Norway, Madagascar and some other locations worldwide.
