It has also been found in the Canadian North West Territories and Nunavut. It is sometimes used by the Inuit people of Canada’s north but not often, as it is a hard stone to work with. It is a chatoyant stone (colors flash on different angles), usually blue and green with pinks, yellows, purples, and other colors on occasion. Good labradorite will have a bright flash or play of colors when turned different angles.
