Known as the stone of communication, it is a power stone enabling you to speak your truth with integrity. It will enhance a sense of tranquility, calming frayed nerves, increase self-awareness.  The blue color ray symbolizes movement, free flowing energy, moving forward.

The color of Lapis Lazuli is a deep blue with flecks of gold throughout. Ancient Egyptians prized this beautiful gem for its natural ability to align both them with the physical realm and that of the Gods. It was believed that the Soul resided in the mind, in the center of the brain. It was used during meditation allowing the user to more fully connect with the Divine Source of All There Is, the Realm of the Gods. It was highly regarded as a mental healer and Soul purifier. The deep colors of blue and gold were power symbols for the Pharaohs’ and High Priests and Priestess’, representing the life giving waters of the Nile.

Lapis resonates with both the Throat Chakra and the Third Eye. When placed directly on the Throat Chakra or worn as a pendant, it will begin to dissolve and clear any blockages, enabling you to speak your truth with compassion and clarity. Placing Lapis directly on your Third Eye Chakra during meditation it will cleanse and balance your energy center, clearing the way to see beyond physical realm perceptions.

This blue and gold gemstone symbolizes purity of thought, purity of heart, infinite possibilities and the wisdom of the ages. Holding, wearing or placing Lapis near you will assist you in releasing limiting beliefs, propelling you forward on the path before you. It will encourage integration between your physical, mental, emotional, mental and Spiritual bodies with your Etheric Energy Body.

    Lapis Lazuli Healing Properties
    The most prized Lapis Lazuli is royal blue, though it ranges in color from very dark navy blue to sky blue to green, with characteristic glittering golden specks. Sometimes called sapphire in ancient Egyptian references. The name comes from the Latin lapis which means stone and Persian lajuward also meaning stone. It is also known as Lazurite.
    Mystical Properties: Lapis was a very important gemstone in ancient Babylonia and Egypt, the deep blue color was often associated with royalty and deity.
    Interestingly enough, Christians, Egyptians and ancient Sumerians all associated this stone with motherhood. To Christians, the stone is associated with the Virgin Mary and Jesus. In Egypt, with Isis and her child Horus.
    Hindus believe Lapis strung on gold wire and worn by children will protect them from all manners of evils, even night frights.
    Christian legend says God’s throne is composed of Lapis, that the 5th stone of Aaron’s breastplate was Lapis.
    Egyptians called the stone chesbet commonly fashioning scarabs from Lapis. The Chief Justice of ancient Egypt wore a Lapis amulet carved with the Goddess Mat (Goddess of Truth).
    Thought to give wisdom and fairness to its wearer and increase spiritual love.
    Lapis is associated with the 6th Chakra, or 3rd Eye. It is considered an important gemstone in subduing an overactive 6th Chakra. Thought to stimulate creativity.
    Catherine The Great of Russia, had all the walls in a ballroom decorated in solid Lapis Lazuli.
    Ancient Sumerians are said to believe that carrying a piece of Lapis, meant carrying a piece of the Gods.
    Crushed lapis used to comprise the ancient and very valuable pigment ultramarine.
    Healing Properties: Most commonly thought to bring peace and soothe depression.
    Scientific Properties: Composed of Lazurite (Sodium Calcium Aluminum Sulfate Silicate) with various other minerals, such as pyrite.
    Distinguished from Sodalite by its richer navy color and its invariable association with Pyrite, whereas Lazulite and Sodalite (often would-be imitators) are not associated with pyrite.
    The most famous locale is in Badakshan, Afghanistan, which has been mined for over 6000 years. Other locales include Russia and Colorado in the U.S. Hardness: 5.0 – 5.5 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale
    True Lapis Lazuli is relatively rare and expensive–but also highly prized. So it has become one of the most faked stones of all. Firstly, a lower grade of Lapis is very frequently dyed to enhance the navy blue color. Lapis, unfortunately, does not take dye well and will easily rub off with some water and elbow grease. Fake Lapis may also be created by dying Howlite, a white stone that takes dye well. We have frequently seen Sodalite or Dumortierite sold as Lapis, however, these stones will never display the sparkling golden flecks that identify true Lapis Lazuli. The best Lapis in the world comes from Afghanistan, though as many US Military will attest–it is also frequently dyed and sold as a higher grade stone.
