The name Lapis Lazuli means ‘blue stone,’ and it is sometimes referred to simply as Lapis.
The name comes from the Latin word ‘lapis’ meaning ‘stone’ and the Persian lazhward meaning ‘blue.’
The shades of blue contained within this crystal’s structure are rich and deep in color, and it has gold flecks running through it, which give it a magical, mysterious charm.
In Ancient Egypt, it was used in cosmetics for thousands of years. It was even said that Michelangelo used lapis lazuli in powder form for blue pigments to color the frescoes in his Sistine Chapel.
Since ancient times, the mystical appearance has drawn scholars’ attention and intrigued seers by its compelling energies.
It has found its way into more than one faith healers’ hands over the decades, and since the dawn of civilization, it has proven a soothing, calming influence that helps to open the mind and calm the senses.
It has been around for centuries, and its popularity still has not diminished. Today it is mined in the USA, Chile, Italy, and Afghanistan.
