Lapis Lazuli dates back over 5,000 years ago where it was prized in ancient Egypt. Lapis may assist you in truth, balance, wisdom, disorganization, and your immune system. The stone promotes courage, communication, clarity of the mind, and works well with the Throat Chakra. This deep blue stone includes tiny flecks of mica, like a night sky full of stars. Its most well-known source is deep in the mountains of modern Afghanistan. The Sumerians believed that the spirit of their gods lived within the stone, while the ancient Egyptians saw it as a symbol of the night sky. Since the earliest of times, lapis lazuli has been associated with strength and courage, royalty and wisdom, intellect and truth. From antiquity, lapis lazuli has been worn in the belief that it will ward off evil. In ancient Egypt, it was powdered and worn about the eyes to improve eyesight.
