Labradorite gets its name from where it is mainly quarried: the Labrador peninsula in Canada. It is a sodium-rich plagioclase feldspar---in other words, a hard crystalline mineral. Thus labradorite---otherwise of an undistinguished gray-green rock color---is able to display a vast array of colors when light strikes it, producing reflections of violet, blue, green, yellow, orange and red. This effect is called "labradorescence." Labradorite occurs in metamorphic or igneous rocks, and it can be found in other places in the world, such as Finland, Russia, Madagascar, Australia, Mexico, Norway and the United States.
