Labradorite is an amazing iridescent stone that showcases a festival of glowy colors such as blue, green, yellow, and purple. 

Connecting with the energy of this stone allows you to raise your intuition, boost your confidence, and strengthen your aura so you can feel protected against negative energies.

One of the things that you may think about is if Labradorite can be in the sun. 

Storing this stone in a sunny place, wearing it during sunny days, or charging it via solar energy, all of these cases make the Labradorite in contact with the Sun. 

So, you may be wondering if Labradorite can be in the Sun and if the Sun rays can have a negative effect on the mesmerizing iridescent effect of this stone. 

Labradorite can be in the Sun, being exposed to the radiant energy of the sunlight won’t have any damaging effects on the stone aspect, however, you should keep one factor in check which is the period of the Sun exposure. 

Can Labradorite be in the sun

Find out in this post, necessary information to help you expose your Labradorite stone in a safe way without harming its beautiful surface. 

Plus, discover later 3 safe and sun-free methods to charge Labradorite without exposing it to extra sunlight. 

Yes, Labradorite can be exposed to the sun, but with certain conditions

Labradorite is totally sun-friendly, meaning that wearing it during sunny days won’t affect its unique glowy appearance. 

However, we all should be conscious of the fact that putting Labradorite in a place where there is loads of Sunlight and for extended periods of time, let’s say months and months, will definitely harm the surface of the stone.

When exposed to the harsh sun rays for a very long time, in daily and repetitive ways, Labradorite will definitely lose its signature iridescent glow. 

So, keep in mind, especially if you wear labradorite as a necklace, ring, or bracelet out in the sun, to store them in a box when returning to home. 

In case, you have a big Labradorite crystal that you put in your living room or any room in your house, try to place it in a shaded location when there is a small amount of sunlight. 

Remember to choose a place where the Sun will not be in contact directly with the Labradorite. 

Because, if you don’t pay attention and you locate your Labradorite crystal in a placement where the sun hits it directly, you will be then surprised to notice (after months of sun exposure) that the stone is not displaying the same intense glowy and colorful shade. 

2 ways to charge Labradorite safely (Sun charging method alternatives)

This section is especially dedicated to alternative and safer ways to cleanse or charge Labradorite.

Yes, you can absolutely use the beaming sun rays to charge your Labradorite and revive its powerful healing powers.

However, opting for the Sun charging technique solely and repetitively may affect the Labradorite for the long run by making it dull and lacking its eye-catching shine.    

Find below 2 alternative charging techniques that are safe and will not affect the gleaming appearance of Labradorite. 

Large Quartz geode

Larger crystals such as Amethyst, Calcite, or Selenite geodes radiate powerful healing and filtering energies that can purify smaller crystals from all the collected negative and discordant vibrations and charge them with pure positive vibrations.

If you have small Labradorite crystals, then this charging method is just perfect.

So, you can place small Labradorite stones inside a crystal geode cluster to soak its purifying energies for a 24 hours period.

You can use multiple types of crystals geodes such as Selenite, Calcite, or Quartz geodes, just choose the one that you have at home.

All of the crystals geodes that I mentioned above emit high vibrational energies that charge Labradorite with positive energies and work on restoring and renewing its healing powers. 


If you want to be extra cautious while charging Labradorite, the moonlight recharging technique is considered a risk-free alternative (unlike the Sunlight technique).

Lunar light is a reflection of the sun’s rays, therefore it is a softer and less aggressive charging energy stream. 

To do this, Put your Labradorite stone directly under the moonlight, don’t put it behind glass or window, because you want the gentle recharging moonlight to reach directly your stone.

The ideal is to charge the stone overnight during the Full Moon. 

It is during this exact period that the moon reflects the sunlight the most.

If you attempt to recharge during other phases of the moon, the light will not be refreshing enough and not as potent as the light emitted by the full moon, and you may also have to repeat the operation several times during the month. 

So, mark in your calendar the exact date of the full moon (you can find the date with a simple search on google by typing “full moon calendar” in the search bar) to be able to profit from this magical opportunity to charge your Labradorite crystal. 

Final thoughts

Labradorite is a part of a large crystal group that can be in the Sun, however, you should be aware that prolonged sun exposure will eventually damage the appearance of the stone by fading its iridescence aspect. 

These are the 4 tips that you should consider when exposing your Labradorite to the sun:

  1. If you want to charge it via the energizing sun rays, make sure to monitor the sun exposure period (a couple of hours is sufficient).
  2. Store your Labradorite jewelry in a box (bracelet, necklace, ring), don’t place them directly in a place where there is a lot of sunshine. 
  3. If you have a big Labradorite crystal at home, make sure to locate it in a shaded location, where the sun won’t hit it directly. 
  4. Try to alternate the charging techniques, try other methods such as Moonlight or Quartz geodes.
