Lapis Lazuli is a dark cobalt and indigo-blue crystal with golden flecks of Pyrite and occasional white patterning throughout. It is made from a combination of minerals, including Lazurite, Calcite and Pyrite. It is an opaque stone that is typically dull naturally, but can be polished to a glassy luster.
Lapis Lazuli is said to have been in existence since the birth of time, and was used by ancient Hebrews on ceremonial robes. It was also a very popular stone for the ancient Egyptians who knew it as the "stone of heaven" and would use it in amulets, cylinder seals, scarabs and funerary masks.
Lapis Lazuli reminds us of the power of the spoken word and is one of the best stones to use when opening and balancing the Throat Chakra. Lapis Lazuli helps to foster full verbal expression, and clears problems caused by “swallowing your tongue”. Lapis encourages clear, truthful expression when sharing information with others, including an easier voicing/communication of anger.
A Third Eye Chakra opener, Lapis Lazuli connects the physical and celestial kingdoms. Deeply peaceful, Lapis provides wisdom into mystical realms and connection with spiritual guardians. Lapis Lazuli can be a key to spiritual attainment.
