Lapis Lazuli


Lapis Lazuli - Crystal

Lapis lazuli is an ancient gem, and as such, has a storied history.  Egyptian cultures made a practice of burying a lapis lazuli scarab with their dead, and believed it to offer protection.  The very earliest cultures valued lapis lazuli more highly than gold.  Greeks spoke of an ancient sapphire which was included with gold, and this was unmistakenly lapis.  Some believed that dreaming of lapis would foretell love that would be forever faithful.

When working or meditating with Lapis Lazuli, it can bring matters more clearly to the mind.  It is one of the most powerful stones and should be used with care.  Wearing a Lapis Lazuli ring can help you to become a channel.  The ancient Egyptians used Lapis Lazuli as a symbol of Truth.

Healing properties of Lapis Lazuli
Lapis Lazuli is used with other stones when parts of the body need to be purified and cleansed and should be only used by a healer. Lapis Lazuli has high intensity and can open many of the chakra centers. This must be done only with love in the heart and comprehension in the mind and wisdom in soul.

Sources of Lapis Lazuli
Lapis Lazuli can be found in Chile, the Soviet Union, the United States, but most significantly from the mountains of Afghanistan.

    The colour INDIGO probably became most well known with the onset of Levi Strauss denim jeans. A very deep blue it is recognised as the colour of the sixth chakra, known as the ‘brow chakra’ and also ‘the third eye’. It is the area where we receive and develop intuitive abilities and also the chakra from which healers can project colour, healing, and promote visualisation. It connects with the eyes and ears and sinuses, and is linked to the pituitary gland. When clear, and well connected with the crown chakra and pituitary gland, it forms one of the three triangles of light. An interesting personal experience took place when receiving a Reiki attunement myself, the image of a gold triangle appeared in my mind and remained whilst the attunement took place. Gold is the complementary colour for indigo.
