The Enigmatic Labradorite

Filed under: short stories — C'hele @ 08:56
She was a heavier set woman. Dressed in a loose, forest green suit, she walked around me busy, with something I could not determine what. Watching her move about, I could not help but admire the large, round lustrous Labradorite that set nestled between her breasts. Approximately the size of a small plum, it shimmered of swirling colours of dark navy blues, yellow, gold and greens. As the woman moved about, the colours within the stone seemed to move too. It was like watching what a hurricane looks like when watching it on the monitor on the evening news.

Commenting on the loveliness of her pendant, she slowly turned and removed it, placing it on a nearby table. I looked down upon the stone that she laid on the table. The colours swirled about as if mist, then suddenly parted. Mesmerized by the sight, I look deeper within the stone. Unexpectedly, I observe the head of some unspecified “thing.” Startling me, it turned its head to look at me. Fascinated, I was speechless, looking at some creature with deep, reddish-orange skin. The creature appeared to be looking at me kindly- I saw no obvious malice within its hoodless black eyes.

The creature had a reptilian appearance and its red-orange face was accented by a blaze of tropical yellow that began at the top of its forehead and stopped just before the end of its nose. Lowering my face closer to the Labradorite, I would not remove my eyes to look at the woman when she spoke: “Did you see it? Did you see the…..?”

So captivated by what I just witnessed, I failed to hear what she named the creature. Still looking at the stone, the swirling mist of colours slowly veiled over to erase the red skinned creature. Stunned by what I just witnessed, all I could do was to pick up the large pendant, thank her, and return it back into her hand.


This, was my dream last night. Bizarre.




  1. Hmm…truly bizzare!!

  3. I have a string of rough labradorite stone at my desk at work that I often figit with. They’re beautiful, but I’ve yet see any creatures within them. I’m glad it was friendly, at least.

  4. You probably already know this, but it seems relevant: Mystic Lore: Intuitive sources say that Labradorite is a stone which assists one in the discovery and practice of ‘magic’, the use of one’s powers of mind to affect the physical world. It is said to unleash the power of imagination and to help release limitations.

    Next time, don’t give that stone back. I think she’s just keeping it for you, but it belongs to you.

  5. Guess what I found out everyone. According to a book that I have: “Love is in the Earth,” Labradorite is indeed a very unique stone. Waxing? You may want to pay attention to this- lol.

    Its other name is often referred to as: “the temple of the stars.” It assists a person in sustaining, maintaining, or understanding one’s destiny that they have chosen. It brings the light of other planetary beings to the soul of the user (this creeped me out). The labradorescence is a luminescence, derived from extra-terrestrial origin (again, creepy). It facilitates the transformation of intuition into intellectual thought and attracts strength and perseverance. It is known as the matriarch of the subconscious mind, providing instructive sessions to the user concerning the implementation of inner messages and the utilization of same in the physcial domain. It symbolizes the moon (also known as the sister stone to the moonstone),
    and it unites the personal self with the understanding required to both realize and achieve the destiny of this life, relieving insecurity and apprehension, while enhancing faith and reliance in oneself and the absolute purity of the universal harmony.

    The book also states: It allows for recognition that humanity represents the “Being of Light,” transcending the limitations of the past ad the thoughts of the future, and embracing the infinite possibilities of the moment. It promotes the synthesis of intellectual thought with the intuitive, mystical, and psychic wisdom.

    I have to stop here as the description continues. What is also wierd, is that Labradorite vibrates to one of two numbers that is my own personal number (numerology). It also represents one of the astrological signs that happens to be my moon sign (your moon sign represents your true, secret or hidden self- the side of you that you don’t always allow others to see).

    The other name for, and a cousin for Labradorite is “Spectrolite.” Going online to investigate further, Spectrolite is valued more than Labradorite. What really freaks me out is that Spectrolite is only found in Finland! (My mothers homeland). I also found out that it is Finlands national stone. Other Labradorites are found in India, Newfoundland, Russia and Madagascar.

    O.k. This really is wierd (but I confess, I already knew most of this stuff).

    However. I think I have a lot of thinking to do………

  6. David: I totally forgot to add yesterday that interestingly, I have never read or heard of those characteristics you mentioned before! I have to admit, it strongly resembles the characteristics of the Moonstone (which is no surprise since they are related). That was very cool, thank you!

    Hmnn. Me thinks you are right about the true ownership of that stone, lol. Currently, I have in my possession a beautiful Labradorite pendant about the size of a nickel. Nothing compares to the beauty of the stone in my dream though. I’ve been wearing my pendant for the last two days. I don’t know what I’m waiting for, but somehow I feel strangely comforted by its presence.

    On the other hand, I think what I really need is…..some medication perhaps? LoL.

  8. “it unites the personal self with the understanding required to both realize and achieve the destiny of this life, relieving insecurity and apprehension, while enhancing faith and reliance in oneself and the absolute purity of the universal harmony.” Wow. No wonder I like to play with those stones at work. I have about three pairs of moonstone earrings that I wear pretty often, I like the elusive glinting light in both of them.
