Labradorite is a fairly recent addition to the semi-precious gemstone world. It wasn't discovered until 1770. Moravian missionaries first found this iridescent mineral rock on the Isle of Paul in Labrador, Canada. Labradorite gemstones were used extensively as a semi-precious gemstone during the 1700's and 1800's in Europe.
Labradorite meaning is deeply rooted in the labradorite stone's use as a "Stone of Magic." This iridescent mineral rock has been greatly valued by diviners, healers and shamans throughout the ages. The vivid labradorescence revealed beneath the gray or black labradorite surface represents deeper, hidden realms beneath the everyday world. These "seen" and "unseen" elements define the root of labradorite meaning.
This stone's ability to encourage self-awareness of inner spirit, psychic ability and intuition is tied to the root of labradorite meaning. These abilities are hidden beneath what is seen in the everyday world like the labradorescence is hidden beneath the gray-green labradorite or black labradorite exterior.
Sterling silver is a timeless metal. Because it is a precious metal, your piece will be able to be passed down for generations.
It is hardy and strong, while still delicate enough to display the complex knots and designs with a shiny and beautiful finish. While not as strong as stainless steel, sterling silver's hue and shine give the air of expense while keeping to a considerate price.
Sterling silver jewelry also makes a perfect gift; you can always be sure that the recipient will appreciate a handcrafted piece.
