There are few stones with as much ancient folklore as the stunning Lapis Lazuli. So much so, that Lapis is said to aid one in understanding esoteric philosophies and concepts.
Associated with the crown and throat chakras, Lapis Lazuli is said to assist in speaking one's "royal truth". Since Lapis Lazuli can help you to access wisdom from your higher self through the crown chakra, Lapis Lazuli is excellent for conveying your own mystical insights and experiences. Lapis Lazuli is a stone that helps us to bring out the best in ourselves so that we are then able to communicate it to others.
Lapis Lazuli contains pyrite (those are the little gold flecks seen in the blue of the stone), and calcite. The combination of minerals that compose Lapis Lazuli therefore make it extremely useful for clearing out old ways of thinking and making room for the new.
If you are looking to dive deeper into intuitive work, Lapis lazuli is also a wonderful third eye stone. In Egypt Lapis Lazuli was used as a tool to communicate with the Gods to receive divine wisdom. If you need to take a step back and re-evaluate bigger picture issues in your life, this is the stone for you!
Lapis Lazuli is linked to the philosophical sign of Sagittarius, and the diplomatic communicator, Libra.
