An exceptionally beautiful stone. Its' overall colour of
dark silvery blue is highlighted with gleams of iridescent
green, turquoise, gold, and other colours -- a phenomenon
called by gem and mineral dealers "flash." This is just
how it appears: a flash of light in the darkness. You may
also find that its iridescence increases as you work with
Its' appearance is a striking description of its purpose;
this stone helps us to develop the wise use of psychic abilities.
Good for psychic development: those who say they have no
talent for it at all; those who feel this ability emerging
but fear it, and those who say they have no control over
it at all. Labradorite/Spectrolite is a valuable stone for
any of these stages.
Though the subject of why people think they don't have psychic
abilities deserves a much longer article, one of the reasons
they feel that way is because on a deeper level they fear
having such abilities. There are likewise many reasons for
such a fear; the one most related to Labradorite/Spectrolite
is the fear that they will abuse these powers.
This is something that many people with emerging psychic
skills recognize. Very often this fear centres around the
temptation to use these ability for ego-related purposes,
i.e., "Look at me, I can read your mind."
In the same sense, sometimes people who say that they have
no control over their psychic gifts don't want to be responsible
in case anything goes wrong.
Labradorite/Spectrolite can be helpful in any of the above
situations. Hold one or place on the third eye (between
and above the other two) and think of its flashing colour
as flames of illumination deeply grounded in being. Imagine
how your own psychic flashes can, when deeply rooted in
a sense of self which is neither inflated nor self-demeaning,
bring enlightenment to your life and that of others.
One particular way in which Labradorite can open up psychic
awareness is in the dream state. It will often tell you
in dreamtime things of which you aren't aware in the waking
