Labradorite is an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary. It can display a beautiful iridescent play of colors, caused by internal fractures in the Mineral that reflect light back and forth, dispersing it into different colors. This effect, known as labradorescence, gives Labradorite its appeal and fame. The stone is composed of aggregate layers that refract light as iridescent flashes of blue, gold, pale green or coppery red. It was first discovered in Labrador, Canada, by Moravian missionaries in 1770 who named it for the area.
