Kalamata Pin with Labradorite
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove — Leonard Cohen
Labradorite is named for where it was found in Labrador, a Canadian province, on the Isle of Paul. According to indigenous legend, a warrior saw the Northern Lights trapped in the rocks and struck them with his spear to free some of the lights. Labradorite is most commonly known for its brilliant flashes of color called labradoressence caused by lamellar twinning inside the crystal. It is considered by some to be a stone of transformation, enhancing strength of will and inner worth.
