Lapis is a gemstone that has existed since the beginnings of time. The ancient Egyptians used it in their scarabs, pendants and other ornamental objects. The famous golden sarcophagus of King Tut was heavily decorated with Lapis stones and Lapis jewellery. It was traditionally used as burial ornaments for royalty because of its value and healing powers.
A Lapis stone is a gemstone of total awareness that helps connect you to a higher truth. It helps to bring out the regal energies and qualities that reside in all of us. Lapis properties also include helping you to further your journey of self-discovery and self-mastery.
A Lapis stone is a wonderful gemstone to meditate with because it awakens the third eye chakra to help you go deeper into your meditation. Try wearing a bracelet while you practice yoga or during your meditation each day to gain the benefits of the Lapis Lazuli stone meaning.
