Mako Shark Tooth and Labradorite Necklace
Labradorite: The Stone of Magic
Legend states that the aurora borealis or northern lights were trapped inside the rocks along the shores of Labrador. When an Inuit warrior came upon the illumination, he tried to set the lights free using his spear. Unable to release them all, the glimmer remaining in the rocks was referred to as "labradorescence".
