Labradorite is a feldspar mineral with the chemical formula (Ca, Na)(Al, Si)4O8. This triclinic mineral can display an iridescent optical effect (or schiller) known as labradorescence. It can be seen as perfect cleavages and uneven to conchoidal fractures as physical properties.
Labradorite can be seen in colours such as grey, grey-white, brown, greenish-blue, pale green, blue, yellow, colourless and greenish.

The high degree of labradorescence is called spectrolite. It is an uncommon variety of feldspar group and has a good market value. Most of the people love labradorite because of it’s characteristic of labradorescence.
We must remember that the most powerful of all is our mind power. The use of gemstones in the chemical, wave and vibration energy of the gemstones can only be of some help to the well being of man. It is like a fence on the stairs. The stair fence is not essential for climbing stairs. But having a stair fence will make it easier to climb the stairs. That is also the case with using a gemstone. Almost every gem has its own vibrational and waves energy. also, the chemical properties of the gemstones are very special. Gemstones are used to cure diseases and to stimulate and balance the energy fields of the human body by the chemical composition and other energies of the gemstones.
