The tale recounts a legendary Inuit warrior the first to discover that the Aurora Borealis had been stolen from the skyand imprisoned in the gem known as Labradorite, smashing the stone with his spear he returned the northern lights to their home, but some light remained eternally encased in the crystal. As legend has it this is how the phenomenon of Labradoresence came to be.
