Labradorite, also known as spectrolite, is a strikingly beautiful stone which is full of magic. Its main use is for psychic and spiritual development and meditating with this stone is particularly beneficial for developing the “clairs” – clairvoyance (clear sight), clairsentience (clear feeling), clairaudience (clear hearing), claircognizance (clear knowing) and clairalience (clear smelling). These abilities are our in-roads to Divine inspiration and knowledge. It is also a perfect crystal for an altar arrangement or to have as a decorative specimen in the home for protection and attracting magic, joy, and golden opportunities to the household. It has a mysterious blue-green-turquoise sheen which are very much angelic colours or colours which resonate with the higher realms. It can also bring creative inspiration, break writer’s or artist’s block, and help in connecting you with your muse. As its colour is mixed it can benefit a number of chakras, but is best used for developing the higher chakras – the throat, third eye and crown.
Labradorite is one of a number of stones which can be carried to assure aura protection, and additionally balances the aura and prevents energy drain. It is known as the “temple of the stars” and as such it has locked within its matrix arcane knowledge from universal consciousness as well as the particular destiny, secrets of the inner self and intuition of its earth keeper. In her book, Melody picks up on its luminescent sheen as being a mark of bringing intergalactic energies into play on the earth plane. It is also linked to the moon with its magical associations and influence on the tides of the earth and the biorhythms of all its inhabitants. While holding labradorite, I have found its energy to feel quite unassuming, but this is deceptive as it is powerful and holds mysterious properties I feel that humanity has not yet the full capacity to understand. This is, for sure, one of the stones that will help in our evolution at this time of great energy shifts within humanity. Labradorite is a type of feldspar, has a soft plate-like formation and should not be cleansed with water: sound cleansing with a bell or singing bowl may be more appropriate.
