This is considered the stone of universal truth and friendship that brings about harmony in relationships and allows the wearer to be an authentic individual. It allows the wearer to tap into their inner power and brings mental clarity and emotional healing. Lapis Lazuli is also said to be associated with self-confidence, truthfulness, openness and inner tranquility. Lapis Lazuli is the ancient stone of mental and psychological health. It promotes spiritual healing, mental calmness and strength of will. It increases psychic abilities and allows for spiritual growth.
The name Lapis Lazuli is international, from the Latin, lapis, which means stone, and from the Arabic, azul, which means blue. It literally means "blue rock" and is actually a rock rather than a mineral. It is composed of a highly variable mixture of the minerals lazurite, pyrite and calcite. In earlier civilizations the lovely blue lapis Lazuli shared with turquoise the distinction of being among the most prized of all gemstones. Descriptions by Pliny and other historians leave little doubt that Lapis Lazuli was the sapphire of the ancients.
Lapis Lazuli was revered in both Egypt and Babylonia and was believed to be a cure for melancholy. The Egyptian high priest wore a Lapis Lazuli image of Mat, the goddess of truth, around his neck.
