About the stone
Lapis Lazuli is the birthstone for September and the horoscope stone for Sagittarius.
Lapis is primarily mined in Afghanistan and has been for the last 6000 years. It can also be found in Siberia, Chile, the U.S, Pakistan and Canada.
Lapis was highly valued by the Egyptians. The golden sarcophagus of King Tutankhamen was richly inlaid in Lapis. It was used extensively in scarabs and jewellery and also ground into powder for dyes, eye shadow and medicinal elixirs. In Ancient Persia it was the symbol for the starry night, in the Islamic Orient it was used as protection from the evil eye and in Roman times it was used as an ornamental stone. It was even a favourite of the painter, Michelangelo, who used it in his painting, ground into powder it produced an intense, but expensive, ultramarine colour.
Lapis is known as the stone of truth and is thought to positively influence friendships and honesty. Lapis is believed to promote intellectual ability, creativity and help to enhance the memory. It carries positive energy and it helps to overcome trauma, depression and grief.
