Chakra Gemstone Properties
Labradorite in general is known to align all of the Throat Chakra, Third Eye Chakra and Crown Chakra.
The Throat chakra, or vishuddha, is associated with hearing, speech and self-expression. Wearing Labradorite is thought to contribute to true and honest expression. Labradorite is also said to facilitate communication between the spiritual and physical world, helping its wearer to recall dreams and experiences from past lives. It is therefore thought to help bring out psychic abilities.
Third Eye Chakra is involved with our intuition and our inner seeing, our higher consciousness, emotional and spiritual love centre.
Crown Chakra allows inward flow of wisdom from the ethers and brings the gift of cosmic consciousness. When stimulated and clear, it enables one to see the truth concerning illusory ideals, materialistic pursuits and self-limiting concepts.
