What Is Lapis Lazuli?

Lapis Lazuli is a gemstone straight out of fairy tales of the Arabian Nights: deepest blue with golden shining pyrite inclusions which twinkle like little stars.

Lapis is a rock composed of multiple minerals. Its colour comes from lazurite, a blue silicate mineral of the sodalite group.

Named after Lapis, the Latin word for stone, and the Arabian for blue. Thousands of years before Christ, Egyptian and Persian royalty wore lapis as a talisman to deter danger.

For many people lapis is a stone of truth and friendship. Bringing harmony to relationships and helping its wearer openly state their opinion. While aiding inner vision, wisdom, insight and judgment. It’s also said to be good for treating thyroid problems and reaching our inner selves. A powerful gemstone that should not be worn by those who lack strength of character.

In other cultures it was worshiped as a holy stone and thought to have magical power in oriental countries. Many believe the Biblical sapphire was actually lapis lazuli. Through the ages, lapis has been associated with power, wisdom, love, and a psychic stimulant.
