Here is a question from one of our customers:
Q: I want to purchase a Lapis Lazuli stone that I can wear in a necklace on my throat chakra. I have been reading about all of the different mines that this comes from and wanted to know if the Lapis from the Afghanistan mine has more metaphysical powers than the Lapis from other mines? Also, is it possible to somehow have the heart shaped lapis stones set in something to wear around your neck? I want to wear something that will give me the most positive energy from the stone for healing and protection.
Afgan lapis has a deeper rich blue and contains more pyrite over calcite. Chilean Lapis has more calcite and less pyrite. Chilean lapis is often called Denim lapis as its color is similar to acid washed or stone washed denim jeans. While the properties are similar, Afgan lapis is said to be more powerful, more spiritual. As far as having a Lapis heart made into a pendent I dont think we do that here at our site. You would have to ask the warehouse. I will forward your reply to them .
