    Labradorite - Scientific Description

    Labradorite is a feldspare mineral.

    It reflects light with a unique optical effect called Labradorescence. 

    Labradorite was named after the location at which it was officially discovered in 1770 in the Isle of Paul, Labrador in Canada.

    Labrador was, however, known to the Inuit peoples of the area prior to it's official discovery and was believed to have originated from the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).
