At first glance, the mineral labradorite glimmers with an alluring deep gray sheen; on closer inspection, one finds that labradorite shifts and dances with every color of visible light. The uniquely layered structure of labradorite results in a phenomenon geologists call "labradorescence," wherein light is reflected and separated into a whole host of colors. Thus, labradorite might appear blue from one angle and pink from another, a quality unique to this mineral.
Labradorite: Hidden Prism
This veiled beauty reflects labradorite's fabled ability to aid in dream interpretation and the discovery of the secrets of the future. Even if it does not augment psychic abilities, one can wear labradorite jewelry as an expression of hidden reserves of strength and inner fire.

Labradorite Jewelry Care & Handling
Labradorite is a moderately hard mineral (6-6.5 on the Mohs scale), but care should still be taken to avoid scratching. Clean your labradorite jewelry often with a soft cloth and warm water so that its luminous labradorescence is allowed to shine through. When not in use, keep your labradorite jewelry tucked away in your Ross-Simons presentation box.
