Made from a combination of minerals, including Lazurite, Calcite, and Pyrite, Lapis Lazuli is said to have been in existence since the birth of time, and was used by ancient Hebrews on ceremonial robes.
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. Lapis also protects against psychic attack, shielding negative energy and returning any negative vibrations to their source. Lapis Lazuli will enhance dream work and spiritual journeying.
Physically, Lapis Lazuli helps with the immune system, thyroid and nervous system. It can alleviate headaches, migraines, fevers and pain.
