Labradorite is one of the trickiest minerals to photograph, and this sphere proves it! Beautiful blue and gold flash roll around the piece, giving it a bright energy.
Carved mineral balls have been contoured in the spherical configuration, becoming the most unified of all sacred geometrical shapes. They radiate energy in all directions, making balls ideal for grid anchors, depending on purpose. Spheres facilitate smoother communication in group gatherings by rounding off rough edges. They are often used for scrying as "windows" to faraway places: future, past and present. They have been used in the activity of gazing, as if from afar, in order to assist one in the evaluation of a present situation or circumstance. Crystal balls have been used to purify and to fill the gaps in the entire auric field when worn or held. Small spheres are also used as charms and worn or carried to prevent and/or to ameliorate degenerative diseases.
Labradorite is a feldspar which is related to both sunstone and moonstone. It is named from a find on the Labrador peninsula in Canada, however this beautiful material can also be found in Madagascar, Mexico, Russia, and in the US. Its unusual color play is called labradorescence and is known to show vibrant hues of green, blue, gold, orange, and sometimes red or purple.
