Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furiends

We hope mew've had a lovely weekend, and today the P.A. gets her furst dose of the covid vaccine; we don't know which one yet, but we'll let mew know later in the week.

Anyhoo, let's continue on our crystal journey and this week, we've got a lovely gemstone to share as Lulu asked us; what is Labradorite for? 

Crystal of The Week


What is Labradorite for?

Labradorite is a truly exquisite stone to behold; the iridescent colours are breathtaking, and the chatoyancy or cats-eye effect of these crystals is something to be in awe of.  Flash's of aqua blue, gold, green and peacock blue make this crystal one of the most beautiful and interesting stones mew could ever have.

We have several labradorite pieces at BBHQ, but the one Fudge is inspecting is our favourite; it is a complete kaleidoscope of colour, and as mew move it, mew get all the colours described above and as in the other pictures. It is ameowzing, and purrhaps a little mesmerizing too, and it's quite easy to get totally lost in this crystal, and as mew move it in the light, it is wundrous like a little bit of magic.

So let's tell mew a little about the gem lore surrounding these divine crystals. These gorgeous stones are purrported to plug energy leaks in your aura. Plus, assist in deflecting negative and unwanted energies by creating a barrier and strengthening the aura. 

It is said to be a stone that enhances intuition and nurtures psychic abilities, stimulating the higher-conscious and enabling a deeper connection to spiritual realms and esoteric knowledge. 

Appurrently, labradorite can also assist in soothing and calming anxious or overactive minds, and can help to reenergize creativity. It's also good for relieving stress, and in chakra healing, would be placed either on the heart chakra or the throat chakra.

There is also a golden labradorite crystal too. Which is suggested to increase deeper mediative states, and assist/enhance channelling/clairvoyance abilities, and in chakra healing would be placed on the solar plexus which is located between the ribs and belly button.

There are some tremendous pieces of jewellery made from this delightful crystal; the P.A. has a ring, earrings, a pendant, a bracelet, actually, she has the lot! MOL Well, it is just purrfect!

So if mew're looking for a lovely stone to add to your collection, this one is fabulous, whether in jewellery or natural or polished stones. 

Many thanks for emailing us Lulu, and we hope that answered your question.
