Sterling Silver Labradorite Pendant
Rangi is the Maori god “Sky Father” who is usually shown locked in a tight embrace with Papa the “Earth Mother” (Ranginui and Papatuanuku) – together they had many children..all of them male,forced to grow up in the cramped space between them, they decide to try and separate their parents, so they can live in the light.
Eventually one of their sons “Tane” – the god of forests and birds, manages to push them apart,straining every sinew in his body.
Ranginui is sky personified..and here you can almost see him reaching for Papatuanuku.
I thought this an apt name, due to the colouring in this amazing specimen of Labradorite, and the fact that mother nature created it
Labradorite is a type of Feldspar, the same family of stone that Moonstone belongs to, these stones are just so incredibly beautiful, with the different colours that change as the light travels across it. This is a very unusual colour Labradorite, I am truly in awe of nature at times.
Labradorite is one of the birthstones for Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces
Labradorite is said to be a highly protective stone, and has various healing uses, alongside many spiritual ones.. It is said to be good for stress, colds,blood pressure, rheumatism, helps to balance hormones and is good for disorders of the eye and brain.
