Lapis Lazuli has continued to be one of the most sought after stones, since ancient times. The rich blue colored dye it provided to those in Egypt and other ancient cultures - made it desirable as blue was known to be the color for royalty.
Today, Lapis continues to be sought after by those in various spiritual communities for its ability to increase your intellectual capacity and open the mind to a higher consciousness. It also provides us with stability and strength when experiencing changes within our daily lives. It can bring out your inner truth when it is most needed, and aids in self-awareness and self-expression! It will push you to act with candor, be more compassionate, and make more moral choices.
Lapis is also the perfect crystal for those who need to be more objective and clear when it comes to their desires or intentions; whether this is in your daily life or in your magical practice. It will help you to confront your highest truth and embrace a more confident self!
