Labradorescence, also known as the schiller effect (from the German noun to sparkle or twinkle), is the phenomenon that creates the spectacular displays of color. Labradorescence is not a reflection on the surface of the stone, but a reflection of light hitting crystals with twinning surfaces inside the stones. Twinning surfaces within stones are errors in crystal growth. Light reflecting off of the different twinning surfaces give us the magical, dynamic rainbow color waves we love so much. Labradorite is said to be a stone of transformation and magic. It is said to clear, balance and protect the aura, as well as being an excellent stone for general protection.
