The Labradorite Legend
An Inuit legend recalls a time when the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) became imprisoned in the rocks of Labrador. An Inuit Shaman saw the lights and struck the earth with his spear and freed them. However some of the lights remained trapped within the stone thus giving us the beautiful mineral known as Labradorite.
