Location: While Labradorite can be found in several locations around the world, the only known deposits for Golden Labradorite are located in Mexico and the United States (Texas).
Mineral Family: Labradorite is a Feldspar, which is in turn a Silicate mineral. Silicate minerals are the largest family of minerals, including more than 25% of all known minerals and 40% of all common minerals. In addition to being a major part of the Earth’s crust, Silicate minerals have also been found on the moon and in meteorites. Silicates are minerals which contain the elements Silicon (a light gray shiny metal) and Oxygen (a colorless gas). There are six main groups of Silicate minerals, and these main groups are further subdivided into secondary subdivisions, such as Quartz and Feldspar. Feldspar is a large mineral family in its own right and is subdivided into Alkali Feldspars (rich in Potassium – for example, Amazonite) and Plagioclase Feldspars (rich in Calcium – for example, Sunstone). Labradorite is a Plagioclase Feldspar. Golden Labradorite is a rare form of Labradorite that is pale yellow and lacks the “flash” associated with the more common grey/green Labradorite.
Formation: Labradorite forms in igneous rocks such as Basalt and Gabbo. It grows in crystalline masses that can range in size from microscopic to over a yard or more in length. On rare occasions, it may grow as tabular crystals. Golden Labradorite
Mining: Golden Labradorite is typically mined from the surface of the earth, found crystallized in grey Basalt which has weathered out on slopes of hillsides in Mexico and Texas, USA.
Enhancements: All Labradorites on the market are natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting and polishing.
History of Golden Labradorite
Golden Labradorite is one of the newest crystals on the metaphysical market. So new in fact that many people wonder if it’s even “real” or if its just a pale quartz or topaz. Simple mineralogy tests reveal that this unique gem is in fact a Plagioclase Feldspar, making it closely related to the more traditional form of Labradorite as well as some forms of Moonstone.
Grey/green Labradorite was first documented in the late eighteenth century in Labrador, Canada, from which it gets its name. This Labradorite displays brilliant flashes of iridescent blue, green and gold, a play of colors known as “labradorescence” or “Schller Effect.” This effect is caused by the scattering of light on thin layers of a secondary Feldspar that has grown on top of an initial Feldspar. While Labradorite is typically a greyish-green or blue stone, it can also be white or pale yellow. White Labradorite with a colorful flash is more often called Rainbow Moonstone. Yellow or Golden Labradorite unfortunately does not display the flashing Schller Effect.
Labradorite was not included in any of the ancient lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers, but is included in many modern ones. Golden Labadorite may occasionally be mentioned as a brief subsection of grey/green Labradorite.

Healing Properties of Golden Labradorite
Spiritual: Golden Labradorite evokes the energy of the sun and the vibration of the Sacred Masculine. It inspires confidence and trust, encouraging us to come into the Light and be the remarkable person we were always meant to become. Golden Labradorite is a stone of Great Magic, awakening our natural gifts and connecting us to a mysterious world in which all things are possible. It amplifies psychic gifts of all sorts, increases intuition and connects us to Universal Energies. It offers protection during ritual work and can help us to smoothly move between realms. Golden Labradorite is a particularly powerful crystal when used in ritual work for manifesting success or transformation. Golden Labradorite is attuned to ALL the Chakras, with special attention to the Solar Plexus Chakra, and is linked to Leo, Scorpio, and Sagittarius. It is connected to the element of Wind; and vibrates to the numbers 6 and 7.
Emotional: Golden Labradorite encourages us to trust our intuition and our heart, and to have faith in our own ability to succeed in any endeavor we dedicate ourselves to. It inspires self-confidence, courage and being pro-active rather then re-active. During times of stress and turmoil, it helps us to stay calm and to focus on solving any problem as quickly and compassionately as possible. Golden Labadorite reminds us to take other people’s needs into account, rather than simply doing whatever we want. It helps us to reach our own full potential, but also to help other people reach theirs. Golden Labadorite inspires us to lead by example, and to have our actions, words, and beliefs all be in alignment. It is a particularly good stone to work with while undergoing therapy, as it can help us to shed negative energy, particularly fear or shame, and increase our confidence and trust levels.
Mental: Golden Labradorite stimulates the imagination and creativity, while also encouraging analysis and logic. It invites us to see the world with a child-like wonder and to be more curious about the natural and spiritual worlds. It encourages us to ask more questions and to be open to unusual answers as long as they have a rational basis. Golden Labradorite also deepens self-reflection and contemplation, linking intellectual thought processes with intuitive wisdom. It is a valuable tool during times of transition and transformation, helping us to calming shift into new modes of thinking and behaving.
Physical: Labradorite is said to alleviate colds and other winter illnesses such as rheumatism and gout. It is most often used by metaphysical healers when the cause of an illness or a physical complaint is unknown or not following the usual medical progression. Labradorite can be used to find the hidden patterns and reveal the appropriate treatment. It is also believed to lower blood pressure and help the body stay healthy during times of high stress and transition. Golden Labadorite in particular is thought to be especially good for illness and injuries affecting the lower half of the body.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
Earth to Pocket
Earth to Pocket is the Moonrise Crystal business mission. It’s the promise that any stones purchased here will be consciously sourced and the journey of the stone, from the Earth and into your Pocket, will be as transparent as possible.
These Golden Labradorites were mined in Mexico and tumbled in South Africa.
I met the owner of the South African tumbling company at the 2014 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. This company only sells tumbled stones twice a year, once at the Tucson show and later at the Sainte Marie Aux Mines International Mineral and Gem Expo in Provence, France. They offer the largest selection of high quality tumbled stones in the industry and are one of my favorite suppliers.
It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Golden Labradorite for you.
This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Golden Labradorite or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Golden Labradorite measures at least 1 inch at its longest length and have a unique shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty.
The stone I choose for you will be smooth and free of chips and be a pale translucent golden stone. If you buy multiple stones, I will choose stones that look and feel particularly good together. Stones will be cleansed and smudged with sage before being shipped to you.
With their beautiful color and clean energies, these Golden Labradorites are perfect for crystal healing. Add them to a medicine bag, place them on an altar, use them in a crystal elixir, fashion them into jewelry, or simply carry them in your pocket.
Safe Handling of Golden Labradorite
Good To Know:
Golden Labradorite are physically durable stones. As long as they are rounded and without thin edges, they can be carried in a pocket or medicine bag, or worn as jewelry on an everyday basis, without significant danger of the stone chipping or breaking.
Golden Labradorite can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.
Golden Labradorite can be energetically cleansed using any method. They will appreciate being soaked in fresh water, set outside to absorb the moonlight, and/or being smudged with smoke or incense. Use your own intuition to determine the best method.
Tumbled and fully smooth Golden Labradorite can be safely used to make direct-infusion “Golden Labradorite Water” for drinking or bathing. Before making any direct-infusion elixir ALWAYS check the mineralogical properties of the stone to ensure it is not toxic. Only use fully tumbled stones or natural Quartz points in direct-infusion elixirs, never rough stones. When in doubt, make an indirect-infusion elixir instead.
Golden Labradorite can be left in sunshine for extended periods of time without losing their color. However, it is always considered a “best practice” to keep your stones and crystals out of direct sunlight as much as possible, especially if they are transparent or translucent.
