Labradorite has never really called out to me, I gotta be honest. It’s pretty enough, but I’ve never felt intuitively drawn to it for any reason.
However, I got it this month and I want to try it out, so that’s my new project! I’m excited to see how it goes.

I signed up for a crystal subscription box, because of course I did. If there’s one thing I love more than being a hippie weirdo, it’s planning ahead and looking forward to something. I will get new crystals and hippie stuff every month for the next five months! So excited.
I’m using The Crystal Council, a company I’ve loved for a long time now. I’ve made several unboxing and review videos on them before.
Every month, they send you a survey about your goals. The crystals you receive are geared toward those goals.
Here is what I checked off for my January Box of Crystals:
I mean really, I want all of those things, right? Who wouldn’t? Over the next six months I’m going to try different ones each time.
Among my other crystals, I received Labradorite in the January box. I’m going to write a full review of the box experience after the subscription ends, but for now I’m going to focus on my crystal experiments.
What is Labradorite?
Labradorite is a feldspar mineral. Feldspar minerals make up 41% of the Earth’s crust. This whole thing goes way over my head, but here’s a quote from Wikipedia:
So, Labradorite is a mineral. It comes from Labrador, Canada. It’s found in many other places (China, Norway, Australia, etc) but obviously the name comes from Labrador.
I’m also going to include this quote from Energy Muse just because it’s cool info:
According to native Canadian tribal lore, Labradorite is said to contain the Northern Lights, known as the Aurora Borealis. In the myth, it is believed that the lights were “set free” by one of their ancestors who broke through the rocks with his spear. The lights that remained were set into stone, and thus Labradorite was born.– Energy Muse
What Does Labradorite Do?
Like all crystals, this one comes with a long list of things it’s supposed to do: Help you with dreams, manifest goals, communicate with angels, open your crown chakra, promote spiritual growth and expand your mind.
I think it’s important to set an intention before working with any crystal.
I’m by no means a crystal expert, but this has been my experience working with crystals so far. When I work with one with a clear intent, I can see results a lot easier (or, if I don’t see any, it’s easier to determine that the experiment ‘failed’). Generic intentions yield generic results.
Since I checked off “Knowledge and Intuition,” that will be my focus this week.
How to Work with Labradorite
Obviously, wearing or carrying a crystal is the easiest way to “work with it,” but you can’t just carry or wear it and forget about it. You have to use it as a visual reminder of your intention or goal. If you glance at it and move on, nothing will ever really happen.
I love hiking with crystals because it gives me something to hold onto while I walk and think about my intention. However, it’s February and there’s a foot of snow outside, so hiking is off the table. I know some people still hike in the winter, but I am not that strong or resilient.
Here is how I plan to work with my crystal over the next week:
- Carrying it with me and placing it nearby to remind myself of my intention (“Knowledge and Intuition”)
- Do yoga with it
- Meditate with it
- Try new ways to expand my intuition
- Journal about my experiences
I feel like I have pretty decent intuition already, but I can always improve on that. My overall goal is to expand my mind and connect to the spiritual realm, I guess.
While it might be a little difficult to “prove” whether or not this happened, hopefully my journal will show my daily process. Of course, I’ll be honest at the end and let you know if I think it worked.
If you want to join me in my experiment (or work with crystals on your own), I have free worksheets you can use:
If you want your own Labradorite, here is a nice large palm stone:
Here’s a really pretty ring:
Here is a 5-pack if you want them for a grid or something:
