Lapis Lazuli

Healing Properties, Meaning, Uses, & More!

Lapis Lazuli

The name Lapis Lazuli comes from the Persian word lazuward, meaning ‘Blue.’ Prized for thousands of years and favored especially in Ancient Egypt, it was believed to lead the soul into immortality and open the heart to love. This royal stone was said to contain the soul of the gods. The deep celestial blue color remains as a symbol of royalty and honor. A powerful thought amplifier, this crystal activates the higher mind and enhances intellectual ability by stimulating the desire for knowledge, truth, and understanding. Like most blue stones, Lapis will stimulate and activate the Throat Chakra. This creates unique energy that may challenge many people, thus making Lapis a powerful stone for spiritual growth and alignment. It may be called a truth crystal, as it also ensures that the words you speak are in alignment with your truth.
