Lapis lazuli, a throat chakra stone, encourages one to take charge of one’s life, as it opens one’s third eye to recognize one’s inner truths. It is a stone of protection that may be worn to guard against psychic attacks.
The dark indigo mineral has been used for over 9000 years in art, and still used today as pigments. Lapis is the Latin word for stone, and Lazuli originates from the word sky or heaven. This beautiful blue is mainly sourced from Afghanistan and ever popular to this day.
Lapis lazuli quickly releases stress, bringing deep peace, harmony, and inner self-knowledge. It encourages self-awareness, allows self-expression, and reveals inner truth, providing qualities of honesty, compassion and morality to the personality. It stimulates objectivity and clarity, and encourages creativity.
