|Properties Of Lapis Lazuli|
Lapis Lazuli (Arabic and Latin - blue stone) can be described as an impure variety of the mineral Lazurite, however more accurately it is a type of rock containing primarily Lazurite, Calcite and Pyrite (also augite, diopside, enstatite, mica, hornblende, sodalite, hauyne).
It has a very distinctive blue colour (due to the Lazurite). Too much pyrite causes a dull, greenish tint. In the best-quality specimens, the colour is evenly distributed, but in general it is spotty or striated.
As well as use in carvings and gems, it has been used for millennia as a blue pigment when ground to a fine powder (known as ultramarine).
Lapis is an excellent stone for executives, journalists, and psychologists, stimulating wisdom and good judgment in the practical world. It aids intellectual analysis in archeologists and historians, problem solving for lawyers, and creates new ideas for inventors and writers.
Lapis Lazuli is a powerful crystal for activating the higher mind and enhancing intellectual ability. It stimulates the desire for knowledge, truth and understanding, and aids the process of learning. It is excellent for enhancing memory.
A stone of truth, Lapis encourages honesty of the spirit, and in the spoken and written word. Wear it for all forms of deep communication. It is also a stone of friendship and brings harmony in relationships. A Lapis grid brings calm and loving communication for a home with temperamental teenagers, or children with Asperger syndrome, autism, or attention-deficit disorder.
A stone ruled by Jupiter, lapis aids vitality and virility by releasing tension and anxiety. Helps in balancing and cleansing all the chakras. Aids in communications with the higher self and spirit guides.
