One of my favorite stones is Labradorite. It is in the Feldspar family and found in abundance in Labrador Canada. This stone has chatoyant properties, or it shimmers like a cat's eye, from the french verb "chatoyer". These stones are described as containing highly evolved energies from other galaxies , the "temple of the stars". It protects the wearer , balancing , clearing the aura , and preventing energy leaks. This is a good stone for the intuitive helping to transform that deep inner knowing to thought forms that can be expedited in this present Earthly plane. Symbolic of the Moon, Transitions, and Ascension.
