I Love Labradorite. The Stone of Magic and Transformation

My love affair with labradorite is recent, 10 years or so. I love labradorite, who am I kidding I love them all, equally, with a few favorites :)

I have always had a collection of stones, it started with picking up rocks as a kid. I had a huge Readers Digest World Atlas and in the back was a chart of minerals from around the world. I would pull rocks from my pocket and compare them to the pictures on the chart and wonder which mineral I had.  That book has long since fallen apart, but I still have those 2 pages :)

When I found out that I could actually buy those minerals/stones/crystals and not have to travel to Brazil or Madagascar, my collection began. These stones spoke to me, drew me in. There would be days when I would have to have a particular one in my pocket, and I didn't know why.  Then I found out that the stones have properties, meanings and it all became so clear to me why I was so drawn to stones.

When I started making jewelry, my intent was to use crystals and stone and work with the metaphysical properties of the stones. I didn't just want fashion, I wanted soul support.

My friend Mushi was obsessed with labradorite like I was moonstone. I would be buying moonstone beads, and she was buying labradorite beads. The flash, that fire that came from the stone when the light hit it was amazing. Even the low quality labs had a fire that the moonstone didn't. I do love the fire of a feldspar!

Now that you have my backstory, let's talk about labradorite - the magic stone.

Labradorite brings your magic to the surface, opening up intuition, communication with spirits and more. It brings strength during times of change or conflict. It is a congenial stone, encouraging courtesy. Reduces depression and negativity. It brings hope to the hopeless. It is a strong protection.

Called the temple of stars - it is a connection to energy from other worlds.

It is a great creative stone and helps with writers block.

To me, this is one of those must have stones for any collection. I never go anywhere without one!

Thanks for stopping by, be blessed and always remember, be peaceful, be kind and find time to create!

All of my jewelry creations are based on the metaphysical properties of the stones or the colors that are incorporated. Jewelry should be a window to our soul, a protector of our emotions and a companion to our spirit. All of my other creations come directly from my heart in hopes they touch yours as well. Celebrate yourself with healing jewelry, and other gift ideas made with love!
