entombed within the rocks on the shoreline of Labrador. One day, an Inuit
warrior found it, and struck the rocks with his spear, and the lights exploded into sky, creating what we know today as the Northern Lights. However, he wasn’t
able to free all of them, which is why today we are blessed with the stone of the lights, Labradorite.
would stroke the rocks in order to travel to the sky. Norse mythology states that the
Northern Lights were created by gods and were meant to be freed to be a
bridge to the heavens. In Oriental culture, it was called the “phenomenal gem” to be worn on
Saturdays. There’s also a myth that the lights
inside Labradorite are aliens or evolved beings trying to connect to us.
