Lapis lazuli is a beautiful blue stone that has been prized for centuries for its beauty and its metaphysical properties. It is a stone of truth, honesty and communication, and it is said to promote self-awareness, self-confidence and self-knowledge.
Lapis lazuli is also said to be a stone of protection and is often used to ward off negative energy and psychic attacks.
Lapis lazuli is a feldspar mineral that is found in metamorphic rocks. It is composed of lazurite, calcite, and pyrite. The blue colour of lapis lazuli is due to the presence of lazurite, while the calcite and pyrite give the stone its characteristic flecks and inclusions. Lapis lazuli is found in a variety of shades of blue, from light sky blue to a beautiful deep indigo.
Lapis lazuli has been used for centuries in jewellery and other decorative arts. It was particularly prized by the ancient Egyptians who used it to make amulets and other religious objects whilst the ancient Greeks and Romans believed that it had the power to protect against evil spirits.
In the Middle Ages, lapis lazuli was used to make religious paintings and sculptures. It was also used to make ink and paint and proved to be a useful pigment in cosmetics.
Today, lapis lazuli is still used in jewellery and other decorative arts. It is also used in metaphysical healing and it is often used to promote self-awareness, self-confidence and self-knowledge.
If you are looking for a stone that can help you to connect with your inner truth then lapis lazuli is a great choice. It is a stone that can help you to be more honest with yourself and with others and communicate your thoughts and feelings more effectively – something that we can all benefit from!
