The Power Of Pearls Throughout Mythology
Pearls have long been attributed with having great powers, and have been incorporated into the mythology of virtually every culture that has encountered them. And no wonder! Given natural pearls' rarity, as well as their mysterious beauty, who could argue that pearls might not indeed be a gift from the gods?
Different Pearl Myths In Different Cultures
In Hindu culture, pearls were associated with the Moon and were symbols of love and purity. Hindu texts say that Krishna discovered the first pearl, which he presented to his daughter on her wedding day.
Pearls In Islamic Mythology
Islamic tradition holds pearls in even higher regard. The Koran speaks of pearls as one of the great rewards found in Paradise, and the gem itself has become a symbol of perfection.
Pearls In Christianity
Christianity also adopted the pearl as a symbol of purity. Many of these ideas have come down to us in pearl lore and legend, and persist even today. For example, pearls are often associated with brides and weddings -- a concept possibly dating all the way back to Krishna and the wedding of his daughter. Pearls are also said to symbolize tears, to provide love and fertility, to symbolize purity, and to ward off evil.
The Medicinal Power Of Pearls In Mythology
In addition -- and perhaps deriving from their mythological significance -- pearls have often been attributed medicinal qualities and used to treat a wide variety of physical ailments.
Color In Pearl Mythology
The colors of pearls also have sometimes been associated with certain qualities: black or gold with wealth, blue with love, pink with success.

It is an uplifting crystal, helping to banish fears and insecurities while enhancing faith and reliance in oneself and trust in the universe.
Labradorite Chakra Healing and Balancing Energy
Labradorite radiates a predominant blue crystal energy that stimulates the Throat Chakra, the voice of the body. It is, in essence, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked, or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. When the throat chakra is in balance and open, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions, bringing our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release. Darker shades of blue encourage the power of truth, while lighter shades carry the power of flexibility, relaxation, and balance. Labradorite, with its iridescent flashes of color, can be very beneficial in uniting all of the chakras.
Golden Labradorite assists in opening the lower chakras during ritual or magical practices, while Spectrolite works with one's "Rainbow Body" to enhance awareness of the higher realms.
