Lore of the Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis.
It has beautiful iridescent flashes of peacock blue, gold, pale green, or coppery red. The predominant blue varies within the light, displaying hues from deepest blue to various shades of pale to almost blue-green.
Treasured for its remarkable play of colour, known as labradorescence
It was discovered in Labrador, Canada, by Moravian missionaries in 1770 who named it for the area. It is, however, referenced in legends by older Inuit tribes, and was known to be in use by the Boethuk peoples of Newfoundland and Labrador
