Always popular and intriguing, Lapis Lazuli has been used since at least 4000 B.C. With an Isometric crystal formation and a hardness of 6 in the Mohs scale, Lapis Lazuli is a sodium aluminum silicate with sulfur and chlorine, often found with inclusions of Pyrite and White Calcite. Found mainly in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russian and Chile, the name comes from Latin and means 'blue stone'. Known as the stone of royalty, Lapis lazuli was used by the kings and queens of Egypt, Sumeria, China, Greece and Rome mainly as jewelry and ornaments but also grounded into a powder for medicinal or cosmetic purposes.
Believed to be connected to the Throat Chakra, it is highly recommended by crystal and reiki healers to connect to your inner self and speak your own truth. It is a great tool for bringing clarity and facilitate communication, and also helps promote deep states of meditation. Even today, Buddhist tradition believe in the power of Lapis lazuli and its ability to help overcome negative thoughts. Physically, it is believed to help relieve any throat issue, overcome sleep disorders and help during vertigo or dizziness.
