Labrdorite is in the Feldspar Mineral family, first found in Labrador Canada, which can display an iridescent effect, called a shiller.
According to the Inuit tribal lore, in the ancient times, the Aurora Borealis were entombed within the rocks on the shoreline of Labrador. One day, an Inuit warrior found it, and struck the rocks with his spear, and the lights exploded into sky, creating what we call today, the Northern Lights. However, he wasn’t able to free all of them, which is why today we are blessed with the stone of the lights, Labradorite.
