In ancient times, lapis lazuli was a highly-prized gemstone in Egypt and can be found in history as far back as 4000 B.C. Lapis lazuli is the universal stone of wisdom and truth. In ancient Persia and pre-Columbian America, lapis lazuli was a favourite stone of the Islamic Orient for protection from the evil eye. Lapis lazuli resembled the blue heavens, and the gold flecks were like stars in the night sky.
In Greek and Roman times it was used as an ornamental stone, and in medieval Europe, it was believed to counteract the darkness with aid from the spirits of light and wisdom. It was ground into a powder and made into ultramarine, used by artists of the Renaissance and Baroque period.
Lapis lazuli is a powerful stone for the higher mind. It activates the third eye and balances the energies of the Throat Chakra, deepening the desire for knowledge, truth and understanding. The Third Eye, is the centre of our consciousness, when in balance, we see clearly; we are open to new ideas, views, dreams, and visions.
A stone of truth, lapis lazuli encourages honesty. The Throat Chakra is the body's voice; it enables us to communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions. Buddhists recommend lapis lazuli as a stone to bring inner peace and freedom from negative thought. It is also a stone of friendship and harmony. Wear it for all forms of deep communication; to reveal your inner truth and encourage intuition and self-awareness.
