Labradorite has been shaped into a heart and highly polished to show off its natural beauty. Puffy hearts make thoughtful gifts as wedding favours, valentines gifts, mother's day presents or just because.
Labradorite, which is named after a major discovery in Labrador, is found in volcanic deposits, also known as spectrolite. Its attractive blue and green iridescence, when viewed at certain angles, makes it suitable in jewellery and as a glaze for ceramics. This stone can be used to assist in accessing the subconscious. It banishes fears and insecurities and strengthens faith in the self and trust in the universe.
The heart has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, emotional, moral and in the past, the intellectual core of a human being. As the heart was once widely believed to be the seat of the human soul, the word heart continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul and stylized depictions of hearts are used as prevalent symbols representing love.
