Spectralite is a form of labradorite that looks more like an oil slick of color instead of a single color or bi-color flash. This palmstone would technically be considered Spectralite. The play of color was hard to photograph, but it's a great juicy pocket stone for anyone who loves lab.
Labradorite is a mixture of two chemically related but slightly different feldspars. Albite contains sodium and anorthite contains calcium. Alternating layers of albite and anorthite start to develop as labradorite cools. Light can reflect off and between them, producing an iridescent play of color known as schiller (Old High German scilihen “to wink’). The name comes from the Labrador Peninsula in eastern Canada. Labradorite was first documented there scientifically by Moravian missionaries in the last 18th century.
Labradorite is one of the most useful stones to work with as it is fabulous for energy cleansing, auric field strengthening, and support for flashes of insight, intuition, and brilliance/creativity.
