Stretchy bracelet made with alternating 10mm moonstone and labradorite. The moonstone gives a soft blue-white glow like moonlight and the labradorite beads refract and flash back blues and greens. The two types of stone are believed to help enhance mental clarity and calmness and spark creativity.

The Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis. Labradorite is a member of the Feldspar family and is treasured for its remarkable play of color, known as labradorescence. The stone, usually gray-green, dark gray, black or grayish-white, is composed in aggregate layers that refract light as iridescent flashes of peacock blue, gold, pale green, or coppery red. The predominant blue varies within the light, displaying hues from deepest blue to various shades of pale, almost blue-green. It was discovered in Labrador, Canada, by Moravian missionaries in 1770 who named it for the area. It is, however, referenced in legends by older Inuit tribes, and was known to be in use by the Boethuk peoples of Newfoundland and Labrador. It became a popular gem in Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Many people believe that labradorite has strong healing energy, which helps in the treatment of numerous physical problems. Here is a list of problems it is believed to treat. ❖ Lung disorders ❖ Respiratory problems, colds, and bronchitis ❖ Issues related to rheumatism, gout, and arthritis ❖ Pain ❖ Metabolism and digestion ❖ Blood pressure ❖ PMS symptoms, pain and heavy menstruation ❖ Detoxifying effects on tobacco, alcohol and hard drugs

"A man is like a bit of labradorite spar, which has no luster as you turn it in your hand until you come to a particular angle; then it shows deep and beautiful colors." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
