Labradorite is the main feature in this piece and a wonderful stone, with flashes of iridescent colors. Legend of Labradorite, represents the stone of one's spiritual awakening and maybe it is because of the iridescent flashes of blue, green, purple, copper and/or golden yellow light hidden in this dark color mineral. This stone is known for promoting calmness, initiating new ideas, promoting the use of wisdom for the intuitive thoughts that come your way, and forming a protective barrier to deflect unwanted energies. Labradorite relates to the third Eye (or brow) chakra. Another tid bit of information is this stone symbolizes both the Moon and Sun, representing a balance. Labradorite relates to Leo, Sagittarius, and Scorpio. However, many people do enjoy this this natural wonder of Nature's comfort stone.
