The light-reflecting gemstone was discovered in 1770 by Moravian missionaries but was known long before that by the Innuit people. According to their legend, the northern light (Aurora Borealis) descended from the frozen fire into the stone. The modern world interpreted different meanings and healing properties of this magical mineral. The metaphysical averment is that connecting with the stone strengthens the aura’s natural energies and repels the negative ones. It is also said that it gives awareness of psychic abilities.
The pendant is cut from a natural Canadian stone specimen. Many Labradorite is available on different platforms that originate from Madagascar, however, very few genuine Canadian could be found.
