my labradorite buddy  
Type: Feldspar 
Crystal System:  Triclinic
Mohs Scale:  6
Composition:  (Na,Ca)AlSi3O8

The stone in this picture is one of the first I ever bought and it is my 'buddy'.  It generally lives on a shelf near my bed.  I have meditated with it and met the crystal deva within.  It was a very interesting experience!  To me this stone has a very masculine, protective energy; it makes me feel safe.  In general I feel labradorite symbolises the hidden beauty within which is revealed when a light is shone upon it as a piece of this stone can look fairly uninteresting until the light catches it and illuminates the peacock greens & blues, golds and shimmering pinks.  Its beauty is breathtaking!
