Lapis Lazuli

Chakra: Throat, third eye and crown chakra

Source: Russia, Afghanistan, Chile, Italy, US, Egypt, Middle East

Structure: The most important mineral component of lapis lazuli is lazurite (25% to 40%), a blue feldspathoid silicate mineral with the formula (Na,Ca)8(AlSiO4)6(S,SO4,Cl)1-2. Most lapis lazuli also contains calcite (white), sodalite (blue), and pyrite (metallic yellow).

Lapis Lazuli harmonizes physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. Imbalances between these levels can result in depression and lack of purpose. In balance, harmony brings deep inner self-knowledge. Self-knowledge is a tool with which we can create a reality that is conscious. Lapis encourages a person to take care of their life, reveals the truth, encourages self-awareness, and allows self-expression without holding back or compromising. Psychologically, it represents the death of the ego. Spiritually, it describes the soul’s journey to Earth, an initiation ritual of death of one’s old self, or even a basic chakra cleansing. This stone brings the enduring qualities of honesty, compassion, and uprightness to the personality.

By transmuting mental and emotional blockages, Lapis sets our soul free to express itself fully. Lapis Lazuli is a powerful thought amplifier. It stimulates the higher faculties of the mind, bringing objectivity, clarity, and creativity through attunement to the source. Lapis activates the psychic center at the third eye allowing one to develop enhanced intuition and access to spiritual guidance. It bonds relationships in love and friendship and aids in expressing feelings and emotions. It dissolves martyrdom, cruelty, and suffering.

Lapis Lazuli alleviates pain, especially migraine headaches. It benefits the respiratory and nervous system, the throat, larynx and thyroid gland, bone marrow, thymus, and immune system.
