For over 6,000 years, Lapis Lazuli has been mined in the mountains of Afghanistan. These spheres are from Afghanistan and have unique pyrite flecks and swirls that call to mind the starry night sky. Lapis Lazuli is actually considered a stone since it is composed of several minerals, including hauynite (causes the blue color), sodalite, lazurite, and calcite (causes the white color). It is also one of the first stones to be made into jewelry in ancient times.
Lapis Lazuli is extremely effectivewhen working with the throat chakra, the third eye chakra, and the crown chakra; however, it may also be used to align all the chakras. It has been called the “stone of total awareness” as it improves concentration and focus while also accessing your psychic centers and expanding your consciousness to unite with the Divine realms.
The deep blue color soothes and gives relief to emotional turmoil, being especially potent when working with anger and rage stemming from childhood issues, addiction, and abuse. Working with Lapis and the throat chakra also facilitates speaking the truth and honesty in spirit and action. Harmony in relationships and friendships is the vibe when Lapis is focused in this area.
Lapis Lazuli is a powerful dream stone, offering insight and connection to the Dreamtime. Sleep with it in your pillowcase, next to the bed, or on your third eye before sleep to encourage better dreaming and the ability to remember your dreams. Dream journals are recommended as well when working with Lapis for dreams.
