Labradorite  is a feldspar mineral, an intermediate to calcic member of the plagioclase series. As with all plagioclase members, the crystal system is triclinic, and three directions of cleavage are present, two of which form nearly right angle prisms. It occurs as clear, white to gray, blocky to lath shaped grains in common mafic igneous rocks such as basalt and gabbro, as well as in anorthosites.

The geological type area for labradorite is Paul's Island near the town of Nain in Labrador, Canada. It has also been reported in Norway (Larvikite) and various other locations worldwide (Spectrolite in Finland).

The colour spectrum of Labradorite resembles the rainbow and Greek Iris, goddess of the rainbow. Norse mythology links it to Bifrost, the rainbow bridge that connects Asgard, where the gods live, with Middle-earth, where people live.

Labradorite gives you strength.
