Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli has a history as rich as its blue hues. Its coloration is so unique that it was actually named for its appearance, since its name translates to “blue stone.” This crystal has endless connections to a variety of cultures across time and space, from the ancient Chinese and Greek civilizations to Persian cultures and more. In the Renaissance period, Lapis Lazuli stone was often ground and used to create  blue paint. In powdered form, the stone was also used as makeup in Ancient Egypt. Lapis Lazuli crystal was also used to adorn burial sites for royalty, and King Tut’s sarcophagus was said to have been decorated with Lapis Lazuli stones. The stone was believed to help guide souls into the afterlife. The most desirable specimens have a rich, solid blue colour and perhaps a few reflective pieces of gold pyrite.


Lapis Lazuli deposits are found primarily in Afghanistan, Argentina, Chile, Italy, Russia, and the United States.

The Lapis Lazuli stone is connected to solar energy with its golden inclusions of Pyrite, which helps balance the solar plexus chakra and the third eye chakra. When these two energy centres are in harmony, it is believed to merge personal desires with divine will. Lapis promotes  confidence and consciousness. Sometimes referred to as a wisdom keeper, Lapis Lazuli unlocks your ability to connect to your authentic self and recognize the value of your own knowledge.
