Labradorite is a feldspar mineral, which crystallizes from magma as veins in igneous rocks, and can also be found in various types of metamorphic rock. Igneous rock (latin word ignis = fire) is formed through the cooling and solidification of lava or magma. Labradorite was first found on Paul's Island, near the town of Nain, in Canada.

Labradorite is popular for it's eye catching display of color, known as labradorescensce, or a play of colors or colored reflections. Some stones have a very high range of colors and are known as spectrolite. The common labradorite stone is inexpensive, so it can fit most budgets. Very beautiful jewelry pieces can be created utilizing labradorite stones. If you're an artist, you might find that this stone goes very well with silver and patina.
