Labradorite is a Barrier Filter crystal. Barrier Crystals are rather rare and powerful. With the inner form of a trapezium, a structure with no right angles, a triclinic crystalline structure gives a crystal strength in all directions allowing it to provide barriers to attack from all directions simultaneously. These Barrier crystals are very effective amulets for defending yourself from the misfortunes of this world.
It can be a dangerous world. Disease, war, famine, heartbreak, accidents, and misfortunes of all kinds can await us. Ships founder, cars crash, the flu spreads. The Barrier crystals are useful when you want to protect yourself from such misadventures. They can aid you in your efforts to prevent mishaps and keep away from harm. The minerals that form in the triclinic, Barrier crystal structure are the true protection crystals.
This Labradorite with its shimmering Labradorescence is similar to the science fiction "shield" that protects starships. It is an energy barrier that will keep you from harm.
Labradorite shimmers in blues, the colors of ice and the slowly lightening winter sky as the deep violets depart and the sun climbs higher each day. As winter gives way to spring, and new life is ready to burst forth, blue marks the beginning of life and emotion. Blue crystals bring trust, faith, patience, and respect, lending the focus we need to become more sincere, act more responsibly, and become more trustworthy.
Light blue crystals help us accept the life we have, develop patience, reconcile differences, or seek forgiveness. They're excellent for recovery efforts from addictions or destructive patterns, aid in curbing tempers, and help us become more dependable and cheerful. Light blue crystals also assist in dealing with grief, letting go of the past, and curing guilt. Darker blue talismans enhance the respect and compassion we have within ourselves. They teach us humanity, discretion, and honor, and encourage us to act more charitably and focus our efforts on service to others.

It helps eliminate the emotional drain of daily routine or being weighed down by responsibility, and awakens a sense of adventure and change.
Spiritual: Labradorite's energy allows one to penetrate the veils of the Void, where all knowledge and possibility are held. It is the place of potential and the source of creation, and for shamans, magicians, and Light workers, Labradorite acts as a protective ally in recalling experiences from other realms, other times and other lives. It assists in moving between the worlds, and in bringing to this realm the creations which are for the highest good of all beings.
Labradorite radiates predominant blue crystal energy that stimulates the Throat Chakra, the voice of the body. It is, in essence, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked, or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions, bringing our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release. Darker shades of blue encourage the power of truth, while lighter shades carry the power of flexibility, relaxation, and balance. Labradorite, with its iridescent flashes of color, can be very beneficial in uniting all of the chakras.
