Labradorite (Strength and Protection)
Labradorite is a highly mystical and protective stone. It raises consciousness and connects with universal energies. It deflects unwanted energies from the aura and prevents energy leakage. Psychologically, Labradorite banishes fears and insecurities from previous disappointments. It calms an overactive mind and stimulates the imagination to bring more new ideas. This crystal is also a useful companion for changes as it imparts strength and perseverance.
Labradorite treats disorders of eyes and brain. It relieves stress and regulates your metabolism. Labradorite treats colds, gout, and rheumatism. It balances hormones, relieves menstrual tension and lowers blood pressure.
Labradorite was discovered in Labrador, Canada, by Moravian missionaries in 1770, who named it after the area. The missionaries took it to England and France where semi-precious gems were made from the Labradorite rocks. Wowed by its luminous colours that seem to change when viewed from different angles, it became a popular gem in Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries.
